DPL Group help FIND Charity

DPL were delighted to have yet another opportunity to support a local charity organisation. Families in Need (FIND) Ipswich has offered a lifeline to people in Ipswich and the surrounding areas who are experiencing poverty and despair.

FIND is a Suffolk charity which supports all those in need, regardless of faith or circumstance. They provide free food parcels and personal care items to help people get through a crisis, as well as furniture, bedding and other household items where the person or family has none. They have a great team of over 80 volunteers who regularly give their time freely to check and sort the donated food, collect items from local stores, make up the food parcels and deliver them.

The FIND furniture store has just had its formal opening, whereby the unit was unveiled by Ipswich Town FC manager Kieran McKenna, as Ipswich Town have worked closely with FIND Food Bank over the last couple of seasons.

DPL has previously carried out work for FIND and we were more than happy to continue our relationship with them. FIND needed further storage to enable them to continue their excellent work in supporting the local community. We installed a power and lighting system, complete with emergency and external security lighting, we installed power to the roller shutter to ensure a secure facility.

The main building works were very kindly completed by Barnes Construction, who were also happy to continue to support the local charity, who installed: a 10x7m portal frame clad with insulated Kingspan panels, powered roller shutter and pedestrian access doors, permeable hard landscaped areas and concrete apron to the front. Other contracted work was carried out by Opus groundworks and Omega who supplied and installed the portal frame.

At DPL Group, our passion for the design, installation and maintenance of building services goes beyond physical structures – it extends to building connections, supporting local businesses and ensuring a brighter future for our community. 

FIND thrives off the kind hearts and giving nature of others, which is why it was an excellent opportunity for them to be on the receiving end for once and accept help when they needed it.
