Company gives support to charity after prospering during lockdown

A WARRINGTON-based company which found it prospered during lockdown is taking action to help a charity which is facing challenges because of the pandemic.

Ultra Decking, at Woolston, is supporting WellChild – a charity that provides garden transformations to help children with complex health needs.

They are working with the charity’s Helping Hands project to provide accessible space that provides a better quality of life with long-lasting durable composite decking – covering the materials and shipping costs for each project. Ultra Decking is a fast-growing composite decking brand.

Sales manager Luke Jeffrey said: “We came across the project through a personal connection with a family friends who was struggling. We wanted to give back to the wider community. We believe everyone has a duty to try and help out wherever they can and give back to those who have not been so fortunate as us.”

In one transformation, Ultra Decking’s composite materials were able to help make a small garden safer and more accessible. As a result, a six-year-old girl and her family have a space to spend time together and for her to play safely and have her own swing.

Charities like WellChild have struggled during the pandemic with huge rises in cost for materials and, now, fuel.

The landscaping and composite sector, by contrast, have kept going with more people looking at home renovation during lockdown.

Mr Jeffrey said: “The pandemic has opened our eyes a bit more to h ow much the little things truly do matter.

“We urge more businesses within our sector to support in any way they can. Even a small amount can make a huge difference. In these challenging times we must ensure this projects go ahead and offer families a small sense of normality.

Ultra Decking is hoping to encourage others in trades such as landscaping or building to join with them is offering support to the scheme.
