More than 20 staff from a supermarket came together to give a community centre a much needed makeover.
A team of Tesco’s Extra team spent a day at the Oval Community Centre in Stevenage revamping its entrance and corridors.
The project was part of Tesco’s commitment to community initiatives.
The team, who are based in Welwyn Garden City, left their desks for the day, accepted the challenge and spent the day preparing, cleaning and painting.
Oval Community Centre had been waiting nearly two years to get this much needed project completed.
The centre is extremely grateful for all the hard work put in by everyone involved with the project.
The finished product looks very professional and the centre now looks bright and inviting for all of the centre’s users.
