The charity, which supports school aged children who are suffering from poverty, has taken over a shop on the first floor in The Mall. The shop needed some working do to it before a refit could take place.

Two facility managers from Vauxhall, along with four other employees, volunteered to help, removing the carpet and taking down a stud wall, false ceiling and wooden panelling.

Vauxhall supplied a Vauxhall Movano van to dispose of the items after Luton Borough Council supplied a permit to take the items to the recycling centre behind the airport.

“It was a task that needed some skilled people and we were very pleased to have some volunteers from Vauxhall who hold the qualifications required,” said Cherie Denton, Vauxhall’s community co-ordinator.

Level Trust’s CEO Jane Malcolm said: “Vauxhall is a huge supporter of Level Trust and has helped us in many ways over the years. We were delighted they were able to come and help us.”
