Burg-Wächter UK‘s ‘Secure Communities Scheme’ has come to the aid of a Dorset charity needing help to keep items of equipment, documents and cash safely stored. The company received an application from the Prout Bridge Project for the free-of-charge support that the security specialist’s Secure Communities Scheme provides. Approving greatly of the work the charity does for the local people of Beaminster, Burg-Wächter’s team was motivated to help the organisation through the donation of a suitable safe.

The Prout Bridge Project mainly supports the youth population of Beaminster and its surrounding areas with a broad variety of initiatives, including counselling, youth mental health support, youth clubs, holiday activities and a youth band. In addition, the charity also provides a hub for local people of all ages through its Community Centre, which is used for children’s parties, exercise classes, sports and craft activities, meetings and demonstrations.

Having liaised with the charity to assess its security needs, Burg-Wächter recommended its ‘PointSafe P2 EWS’ safe, because it is ideal for quickly stowing documents of various dimensions, thanks to its two insertion slots of two different sizes. With one slot at the front and the other on the top, it is easy to pop documents into the safe, even when it is permanently installed, without having to open it first. The safe offers the option of a double-bit lock with two keys or an electronic combination lock.

Joy Edwards is a Trustee of the Prout Bridge Project. She comments:

“It’s a relief to have the safe that Burg-Wächter donated so that we can keep a variety of smaller items, equipment and coffee bar takings nice and secure. The donation is much appreciated. Applying for it was simple. I went onto the company’s website and followed the link to its Secure Communities Scheme. Then all I had to do was to email some details to an address given there.”

Burg-Wächter’s Secure Communities Scheme gives regional community leaders and volunteers the chance to win a security kit worth up to £200 for their organization. Any regional initiative that is run by or supports the local community can apply.

Burg-Wächter launched the scheme in recognition of the fact that people around the country who are doing their bit for their community should not have to worry about the security of their premises, equipment or storage areas.  The company’s Secure Communities Scheme is its way of saying thank you to community leaders for supporting people in their area.

The type of project or organisation that the scheme is open to is very wide-ranging. It could be a scouts group; a local sports group like a cycling or football club; a school after-hours club; a hospital or healthcare community programme; a provider of events for children or pensioners; a facilitator of village activity; or a town/village charity. As long as the initiative is run by or supports the local community, and it has a specific security need Burg-Wächter would like to hear about it. Successful applicants will each receive a tailored security kit to help secure property, premises, equipment or storage areas to the value of £150 – £200 at retail price.

The Secure Communities Scheme is an ongoing initiative, which has already helped over 100 regional causes through the provision of over 2,000 pieces of security equipment.
