GardenSite Donates Shed To Gracechurch Charity

The Gracechurch Centre has now been a part of Sutton Coldfield Town Centre for forty years and, as part of the celebrations, Garden Site is donating a 10ft x 8ft workshop to a local deserving cause.

Created by David Coton on Thursday, 28th of August, 2014.
Updated on Friday, 24th of March, 2017.


To celebrate the centre’s landmark birthday there's been a series of events, culminating in a week long 1970s themed exhibition. 

The 10ft x 8ft shiplap workshop is the centrepiece of the exhibition, wrapped in purple to reflect the town’s royal status and standing next to a gleaming Ford Escort, the iconic 70s car. 

1970s Followers Of Fashion 

Inside the workshop there's a variety of products identified with that decade. People of a certain age will remember with affection the space hopper, chopper bike, lava lamp and other artefacts that were once the height of fashion along with platform heels.

When the centre was built in 1974, George Mcrae was top of the pops, a teasmade got you out of bed in the morning and Roger Moore would only have to lift an eyebrow to induce large scale female swooning. 

We've been providing the centre with colourful hanging baskets for several years and so were pleased to help out when asked to donate a shed for their '40 Good Deeds initiative'.

This is a special part of the birthday celebrations and aims to help local people and charities with time, space or gifts.

A Large And Versatile Workshop

The 10ft x 8ft Standard Shiplap Workshop, part of the Halls range of sheds that are excellent value for money, is an ideally sized working space and great for storage, somewhere to stow away valuable equipment, knowing that it is secure under lock and key.

As a local business, Halls are very pleased to have made this contribution to the Gracechurch Centre's celebrations, and after the event the shed is to be given to a community group or charitable organisation in the town who are judged to be the most deserving and who will make the best use of it. 

So anyone who’d like to nominate themselves or an individual or group to receive the shed should email fiona.faizey@cbre.com with a few sentences on why it is needed and how it will help.
