Aug. 31, 2012 - PRLog -- 120 Employees from the venue, home to BT Convention Centre and the Echo Arena, pulled on their overalls to carry out repairs at Nursery Centre 56 and Dutch Farm, both in Liverpool.
At Centre 56, everyone from event Managers to box office staff carried out internal and external repairs to the building including painting, with paint provided by Hankinson’s, constructing shelves and securing fencing.  They also developed an allotment and herb garden for the nursery, which provides support services for vulnerable people.
Pat Roberts, nursery Manager said “We are grateful to the Staff at ACC Liverpool who were happy to roll their sleeves up and get stuck in to help us.  We inherited a derelict building last year which needed a lot of attention and the repair work carried out by ACC Liverpool Staff will make a massive difference”
Last year, employees developed and transformed Dutch Farm to create an allotment for the Liverpool Food Alliance to use to produce locally grown products for organisations such as the YMCA.
This year, 39 staff were tasked with continuing the development of the site, which will soon be open to the public, by clearing paths and improving accessibility.
Peter Boyle, YMCA Project Development Officer, said “Last Year ACC Liverpool kick started a Liverpool wide food hub by creating growing space for homeless hostels in the area to produce and sell food, bringing in valuable funding.
“Wed like to build on this by making the farm more open so that the public can see the hard work going on and buy locally grown produce.  ACC Liverpool has been really supportive of us and its help is much appreciated”
Hankinson was one of the Suppliers that helped to make this happen and was happy to support a local mission to give back to the community.
