Two huge packages of portable cabins recently arrived via express delivery at the Phoenix Trust, the Milton-based charity.

When Neil Cook, Group Director at design and furnishings firm COEL, learned that Martin Mace of Supplant, a plant-tech company based in Cambridge Science Park, no longer needed the two cabins, he looked for a way to make them good to make use of.

Neil knew that the Phoenix Trust needed storage to keep their materials and products safe, dry and protected and thought the cubicles were the perfect solution.

After Martin kindly agreed to donate the cabins to the Phoenix Trust, Welchs Specialist Movements agreed to deliver them.

Neil said, “I would like to thank Martin Mace of Supplant and the Welch Group team for their proactive and invaluable contributions to this process, without which this would not have been possible. The Phoenix Trust is a charity that is close to the heart of the COEL and we are delighted that we were able to reach out to the Cambridge business community to support the Phoenix Trust in its excellent work. ”

Martin von Supplant said: “It has been a pleasure to donate the storage cubicles to such a fantastic organization and I look forward to seeing them in their new home. I hope the Phoenix Trust can now safely protect its supplies from the worst UK weather. “

Julie Payne of The Welch Group said, “Welch’s Specialist Movements is one of several companies in the Welch Group, a company that prides itself on being founded on ‘family values’. This is reflected in our ethos towards the local community and when approached regarding the delivery of the cabins to The Phoenix Trust we went out of our way to help. We are excited to be able to help the charity and support them in their incredible work. “

Jude Tustian of The Phoenix Trust said, “We are very grateful to everyone involved in this donation – a real team effort from COEL, Supplant and The Welch Group.
