Cytec Industries logoCytec’s Keighley, UK site (previously Umeco) received a Mental Health Award from the Bradford Mental Health Employment Partnership and The Cellar Project.

The Keighley site won the Organisational Support Award for being the “Organisation who has done the most to support mental health & employment in 2012”. Darren Sinfield, factory manager, attended the awards ceremony on January 22 and accepted the award for Cytec.

The Cellar Project is a charity and social enterprise based in Shipley, West Yorkshire. The charity helps people recovering from mental health problems get back into work and day-to-day life through a range of training programs that help people develop the necessary confidence & skills to make informed choices and fulfill their potential.

The Keighley site regularly receives wooden pallet tables from a US supplier so that pallets may be double-stacked during transit. After their appropriate use, the Keighley site donates the pallets to their local charity – The Cellar Project. WoodWorks – a micro-business at The Cellar Project that specializes in the manufacture of wooden garden products, wooden animal care products and furniture restoration – who use the timber in production of goods which are then sold to the public. You can purchase items from WoodWorks direct from the charity as well as on Ebay. All products will soon be available for sale on their own website
