We’re delighted to share that Milton Keynes Lifelong Learning and MacIntyre’s Corporate Partner Willmott Dixon have won Honour Goodsite’s Big Build Competition 2018.
Honour Goodsite's Big Build Competition encourages contractors to get involved with their local communities, by building a structure out of recyclable items. Collaborating with Willmott Dixon, Milton Keynes Lifelong Learning’s The Junk Art Group created ‘Robbie the Robot’. Made from items what would have ended up in the landfill, ‘Robbie’ is a representation of the 5 senses.
Speaking about the project, Helen Robins, Senior Learning Support Worker said:
“The Junk Art Group, who meet every Wednesday, were approached and were definitely up for the challenge. The group were set a target of approximately two months to complete the target (just eight sessions!)"
"The guys worked incredibly hard and came up with some fantastic and innovative ideas, using a multitude of media that was on the way to landfill. We were very fortunate to have a lovely lady called Celia from Willmott Dixon spending numerous hours supporting everyone and keeping our momentum up with cake and biscuits!”
Louise Taylor, Frontline Manager at Milton Keynes Lifelong Learning & Fletchers Mews Activity Centre said:
“This is a fantastic example of not only the wonderful creativity and skills of the people we support but the benefits of working together with other organisations to build relationships and showcase what we do.”
We would like to take the opportunity to thank Celia Thompson and the rest of the team at Willmott Dixon for their continued support.
