SICO EUROPE® TURNS TABLES INTO AID

Happy children with their new SICO tables

SICO EUROPE® have been giving a helping hand to youngsters in the developing world by swapping old dining tables in schools across Telford & Wrekin for new SICO EUROPE® Combined Table Seating Units.

As part of Telford & Wrekin's Best Value programme to refurbish school dining areas, the council's education catering service has been replacing old tables that are passed their sell by date, with new purpose made tables from leading manufacturer and furniture supplier SICO EUROPE®.

The old tables are being taken away in the empty SICO EUROPE® delivery vans, at no cost to the council, to be delivered to the Medical Missionary News (MMN) a charity based in Essex who send out regular containers of equipment to Africa and South America to support a number of schools. Pupils are also sending letters, care of the SICO EUROPE® lorry drivers, to the children in Africa who will be using the tables.

Borough of Telford & Wrekin cabinet member for education Councillor Peggie Harrison said: "This is a wonderful scheme that is benefiting children in the developing world. Where possible, we've distributed the furniture to local community groups, but disposing of old furniture can be real headache. Thanks to the quick thinking of our sites and premises officer Mike Moore, old tables are now finding a useful home.

Andrew McDonald, Regional Sales Manager for SICO EUROPE® is "delighted that Telford & Wrekin schools are enjoying the use of SICO EUROPE's® tables. I am finding great satisfaction with the knowledge that SICO EUROPE® have saved Telford & Wrekin valuable money, whilst at the same time providing a delivery service for the old tables destined for the developing world."

Mike Moore, Sites and Premises Officer said: "The new SICO EUROPE® tables are easy to stack and put out, which means many schools can be using their hall space for something else - only minutes before and after lunch. The tables are also ideal for breakfast clubs, as the room can be laid and cleared quickly and efficiently before the start of the school day. The service that we received from SICO EUROPE® was excellent, in particular the delivery drivers were courteous, efficient and incredibly helpful."

The Borough of Telford & Wrekin has been carrying out a major refurbishment programme to school kitchen and dining facilities over the last year, together with investment in a new lunchtime pre-pay system. The overall programme is part of the council's Invest to Save plan, acting on findings from the Best Value review of the service, designed to bring in savings in the region of £4m over an eight to 10 year period.
