Builder’s cash for local car club
28 January 2022
A Hull charity that teaches vehicle maintenance to young people has received a donation for new tools and equipment from Yorkshire.
Outkast Panda Crew CIC was awarded £1,000 from the Community Champions scheme.
The educational charity aims to train young people in vehicle maintenance to help support future career opportunities.
Director of Outkast Panda Crew, Jonathan Cahill said: “Our focus to give young people new skills that will help them gain qualifications and, ultimately, future employment.
“Our sessions cover general vehicle maintenance, welding and fabrication, body panelling and road safety. The aim is to provide a range of skills that will help them forge a career in the motor industry.
“The Persimmon Homes’ donation will fund essential new tools and equipment to help deliver our sessions. We are immensely grateful.”
Scott Waters, managing director for Yorkshire, said: “Our Community Champions scheme is about supporting good causes. Hull has always been a key area of the development for us and with new sites in the area coming soon we are very happy to support the inspiring work of the Outkast Panda Crew.”
We currently have two sites in Hull, Mulberry Gardens in Kingswood, and Trinity Pastures, off Calvert Lane. Infrastructure works is expected to begin in March at Trinity Pastures and will feature a collection of 166 homes.
