New volunteering project launched at Coventry's historic Charterhouse

A VOLUNTEERING project aiming to help young people in Coventry and Warwickshire learn valuable skills has been launched by at an historic site in the city.

National training provider PET-Xi has partnered with Historic Coventry Trust to provide volunteers to help improve the Charterhouse Heritage Park.

Kerri Bowers, PET-Xi contract manager, said: “We’re very pleased to have launched our volunteering project at the Charterhouse, and we’re grateful to Historic Coventry Trust for allowing our trainees to participate in the restoration.

“Those on the project will be helping out through activities like litter picking and restoring wildlife habitat.

“Volunteering helps build key skills, such as teamwork, punctuality, and commitment.”

The volunteers will now attend every Friday to help out, and the company hopes this project will be a springboard for other volunteering projects around the region.

Outgoing Coventry City Mayor Coun Ann Lucas, who was at the launch, said: “It was fantastic to see some of the young people being trained by PET-Xi giving up their time to work on such a worthwhile project.

“When Charterhouse opens later this summer, they can be proud of what they’ve contributed to its restoration.”
