TTE apprentices volunteer to help Zoe’s Place

Posted 11th March 2016 By TTE Press Office

As part of National Apprenticeship week (14-18 March), five young people from Middlesbrough-based TTE are giving up their time to help the charity, Zoe’s Place.

The second year electrical apprentices, Joshua Wade, Eleanor Bage, Alfie Wren, David Churm, Lewis Steele and two of TTE’s trainers, will spend four days at the charity, where they will install an emergency lighting system and external power supply.

Using a £150 donation toward materials by TTE and further supplies given by local businesses, the group will deliver a lighting system that will remain in operation if there was a power cut from the national grid, which would allow staff to safely tend to the children in their care.

Zoe’s Place Baby Hospice provide a ‘home from home’ environment for babies and infants up to five years old who have life limiting or life threatening conditions. TTE is a proud supporter of Zoe’s Place and is currently planning to compete in the Three Peaks Challenge on its behalf.

Steve Grant, Managing Director at TTE, said: ‘Apprenticeships will play a major role in tackling the shortage of skilled tradespeople that industry as a whole is experiencing, and National Apprenticeship week is always an excellent opportunity to showcase the talent our young people possess.

‘The work carried out a Zoe’s place is proof of these skills and capabilities, and it’s great to see them applying the things they’ve learnt during their time at TTE and from sponsoring companies, to give back to the community and make a real difference.’

Mark Guidery, General Manager at Zoe’s Place, said: ‘The new lights would have cost us a significant amount of money, something that a charity such as Zoe’s Place doesn’t necessarily have. Thanks the TTE and the apprentices we can rest safe in the knowledge that we have this emergency back-up system in place.

‘Charities often rely on the kindness and generosity of supporters and we’re very grateful for the continued backing that TTE and the business community provide.’
