A team of workers from Crossrail contractors BBMV gave up their time to help a children’s cancer charity decorate and move into its new office.
BBMV employees moved furniture, redecorated the office space and created a bespoke storage and workspace area for The Childhood Eye Cancer Trust’s new base in the E1 Business Centre in Whitechapel Road.
The national charity supports families and individuals affected by the rare eye cancer retinoblastoma and also raises awareness of the condition and funds research into the disease.
Poplar mum and CHECT ambassador Cathy Woodstock attended the official opening of the new offices with her one-year-old daughter Kitty, who was diagnosed with retinoblastoma when she was just a few weeks old.
Joy Felgate, CEO of the Childhood Eye Cancer Trust, said: “As such a small team of eight the idea of moving office was quite daunting but the help from BBMV has made the whole process run really smoothly and we are delighted with our new offices. Thank you to everyone who has helped with the move.”
