Central Glass and Windows support local charity to transform former community centre into the Indi Club

Stoke-on-Trent based Central Glass and Windows has helped local charity Project Indi to transform a former social club into a base for local community and education projects.

The company donated materials and work to the Indi Club, Sneyd Green, as part of an agreement with Unitas Stoke-on-Trent Ltd which provides repairs and maintenance services for the City Council.

The Indi Club, based at the former Sneyd Green Community Hall, is a community hub offering a wide programme of activities, events, and bar facilities.

Central Glass and Windows fitted new windows and doors throughout the building. Managing Director Gareth Dunn said: “It was great to get involved in a community project in the heart of our home city and close to our offices and workshops in Hanley.

“The installation work took around three days to complete on site and we fabricated the aluminium window and door frames in our workshop using CNC machines. We’d like to thank Brownhills Glass, a trusted supplier, who agreed to donate the glass for the project.

“Central Glass and Windows has worked on several projects for Unitas and it’s a pleasure to support their CSR programme in Stoke-on-Trent by donating materials and labour to help transform the Indi Club.”

Natasha Gratton, of the Helping Angels charity which leads Project Indi, said: “The new doors and windows have made a huge difference – the building now has a light and airy feel. The Central Glass and Windows team were fantastic to work with and completed a complex job promptly and with the minimum possible disruption.”

Rachel Forster, Corporate Social Responsibility Coordinator at Unitas, said: “Unitas helped the Indi Club to bring together contractors to work on this renovation project. The work is part of our Social Value Commitment for Helping Angels. When we go out to tender on work, we ask contractors to give back to the community and Central Glass has done a brilliant job here, giving back to provide new windows and doors to help transform the Indi Club.”

The Indi Club is available for hire by local residents and is used for clubs, classes, and events. It also has a sensory room and serves as a base for Project Indi’s work to provide life skills, volunteering, and work opportunities for vulnerable local adults.

Its parent charity, Helping Angels, also runs the Café Indi, in Burslem Park.
