Nestled in the heart of the Sunderland community, the Fans Museum is a totally unique museum that houses a huge collection of football memorabilia ranging from match shirts, football boots and winners’ medals.
To continue our efforts in giving back to the community, the team at RE:GEN swapped the board room for the building site last week as part of a volunteering day to create a new memorial garden at the museum. Leading from the front, CEO Lee Francis was joined with Directors Brinsley Sheridan and Jonathan Horner, as well as Quality Assurance Manager Kirsten Cox.
Working in collaboration with Craig Bell from Jewson’s who kindly donated materials for the day and under the watchful eye of Museum owner Michael Ganley, the team set to work!
Lee Francis, CEO, RE:GEN Group comments:
“With around two-thirds (65%) of the UK population reporting that spending time in green spaces benefited their mental health more during the lockdown than before, projects such as this couldn’t be more important. We would like to say a huge thank you to the members of staff and directors who gave up the time from their busy schedules to volunteer. Being a Sunderland fan myself it’s very rewarding to be in a position to use our skills to create a new space that will provide a sense of peace and reflection for local residents and visitors to the museum.”
