A charity in Plymouth for supporting people in recovery has a new security system donated by a local fire and security firm.
Securi-Guard, based in Estover, worked with one of its suppliers, G & R Electrical at Faraday Mill, to provide Shekinah with updated CCTV for its Bath Street premises.
The charity’s existing system was outdated and when Securi-Guard heard new equipment was needed to better protect staff and the building, the company offered to help. G & R Electrical shared the cost of the new kit with Securi-Guard, who also provided an engineer to fit the system for Shekinah, whose slogan is ‘building lives and futures’.
The charity does this by working with the homeless, people with drugs and alcohol issues, offenders and those suffering mental ill health, helping them to develop new skills and go on to live independent and fulfilling lives.
Bob Truesdale, Fire and Security Systems Manager at Securi-Guard, said: “Shekinah is one of Plymouth’s most recognisable charities and does tremendous work in helping people regain their self-esteem and sense of worth. We felt this was a very deserving and worthwhile cause and certainly appreciate the help and support of G&R Electrical in making this donation possible.”
In a letter to Securi-Guard, John Hamblin, CEO of Shekinah, thanked the company for its ‘generous donation’ of the CCTV. He wrote: “The old system was certainly past its sell by date and having new equipment will make a difference to the security of staff and the building. We thank you again for being part of ‘building lives and futures’ in partnership with Shekinah.” Visit: www.securi-guard.co.uk
