STAFF from a Redditch manufacturing firm have helped revamp a home for the disabled.

Workers from Alcoa Fastening Systems in Park Farm, visited Leonard Cheshire Disability Saltways in Webheath to renovate their communal patio area.

Senior managers, office, staff, machine operators and apprentices spent their time painting the garden furniture, planting flowers and shrubs as well as general tidying up and maintenance.

The Alcoa Foundation has also donated $1,500 to the home, which offers community housing and respite for disabled people from the age of 18 upwards, which will help fund their future memorial garden.

Staff volunteered as part of Alcoa’s Month of Service which takes place during October.

Kay Restall, volunteer co-ordinator at Saltways, said: “We really appreciate Alcoa’s support. The plant arrangements are going to provide a bright welcome to Saltways, and the refurbished patio furniture and clearing of the patio, will mean that this is a lovely area for residents to spend time with family, friends and volunteers when the weather is good.”
