Mansfield based national interior fit-out specialists, Jephsons Shopfitters, brought some early Christmas cheer to Portland College with the manufacture and installation of a brand-new bar in the College’s Eastwood Suite.
Jephson’s Commercial Director, Ian Jephson, unveiled the new bar to a gathering of business owners and managers at the Mansfield and Ashfield 2020 networking event with the help of Santa Claus.
Jephsons has been a long-standing supporter of the North Nottinghamshire College, which works with disabled people to develop their employability, independence and communication skills. It also works with employers to create an inclusive workforce and support business growth. The College approached Jephsons to see if it could help with the installation of a new bar, but it had no idea it was in for an early Christmas present when Ian revealed that the company had contributed £5,000 worth of work and materials for free.
“Portland College is one of our chosen charities that we support. The Eastwood Suite is a great venue for all sorts of events and we are proud of our contribution to its future success. We also make good use of Portland Print, the College’s print workshop which prints all our stationery. We think it’s really important to support enterprise like the College in our community and would encourage others to do the same, not just at Christmas, but all year round,” said Ian Jephson.
