Valuable to the community

BEHIND the doors of a quaint building, nestled inside the Industrial Estate, is a group of eager workers making a big difference in the community.

Endeavour Industries employs 37 people with disabilities and it impacts not only their lives but also the wider community.

The crew are often out and about collecting recycling from local businesses, resulting in a positive effect on the environment.

The lifespan of landfills are increased due to the large amount of recycling performed by employees.

The company also utilises recycled materials in the manufacturing of hearths, reducing the need for newer materials.

But most importantly, the employees and their families reap the benefits from the employment opportunities Endeavour offers.

Customer service manager Lisa Wilson said the staff loved their jobs and got more from it than most people would imagine.

"It gives these guys a purpose and makes them feel valuable," she said. "It also shows the community that the employees are valuable members of society."
