There was a galore of songs and dance at the Thomas BarnardoHouse,a children’s rescue centre in Nairobi when PG Bison Kenya Ltd in partnership with Trigg Fit Outs handed over a new renovated kitchen for the home.
The home, which was constructed when Kenya secured its independence, desperately needed a complete makeover and PG Bison stepped in to help.
Applause and loud cheers from the children greeted Gareth Jones, the Business Development and Operations Manager of PG Bison, and DipanMediratta, the Managing Director of Trigg Fit Outs, as the ribbon was cut to officially open the kitchen. Afterwards the older kids showed their cooking skills by preparing a meal for the youngsters of House Number Seven.
“When I visited Thomas Barnardo House for the first time, I was horrified by the state of the kitchen. There were leakages under the sink and the wooden cupboards had decomposed,” said Jones, adding that there was need to renovate and modernize the kitchen.
PG Bison mainly supplies interior building materials to contractors, developers and furniture manufacturers for the production of interior cabinets. The company according to Jones partnered with Trigg Fit Outs, to renovate the kitchen. “PG Bison donated the raw materials required for these makeover requirements and the kitchen was made using the company’s lava dust worktops and caramel coloured particleboards for the cabinetry,” said Jones.
