After the atrocity of vandalism, to the Lottery Funded charity Little Miracles in Peterborough, DALROD were only too happy to lend a hand, a long with many other businesses throughout the city.
The charity who became famously supported by Nick Knowles and the BBC’s Big Build, come under attack from vandalism earlier this month. The centre’s garden and play area was damaged by an explosion of fireworks and paint, as well as stolen items and damage created to the shed and fencing. The charity support many families within the local area, who have children with severe illnesses and disabilities, giving this a place of respite and retreat.
The Cambridgeshire Chamber of Commerce were quick to act, and gave a plea for businesses of Peterborough, to come to the Little Miracles aid on their social media.
With no hesitation DALROD Peterborough contacted the Little Miracles head quarters “The Spinney” to see how we could help.
Last Monday the guys from DALROD Peterborough attended the centre and completed the clean operation with the help of our powerful jetters, removing the paint from the pathways and play equipment.
As much as this is an extremely sad situation for the Little Miracles Centre, it has reconfirmed what a great business community we are apart of, Well Done to all.
