Caddick Construction has extended its redevelopment work at Stretford Mall on Chester Road to support a neighbouring children’s charity with much-needed renovations.

Founded in 2022, the Little Green Sock Project is a Stretford-based charity dedicated to supporting struggling local families with pre-loved items donated by the local community; from clothing, footwear and toys to equipment including prams, cots and high chairs.

Caddick’s renovation of the Little Green Sock Project transformed the formerly-derelict building from an unsightly and unsecure property, to a safe and welcoming space. The work means the charity is now able to invite members of the local community on to the premises where it provides much-needed support to over 1,000 children every year.

The building work consisted of levelling out the flooring then laying carpet, installing a security door, erecting partition walls, plus the creation of a comfortable seating area in order to offer wider support and sign-post local services.

Co-Founder of Little Green Sock Project, Catherine D’Albertanson, comments: “Since moving to Stretford in November 2022, our goals has been to create a welcoming space where families can choose essential items for their children, while also opening doors to connect them with further support within our community. Poverty often removes choice, so offering families the opportunity to select items in a safe and judgement-free environment restores dignity.

“Caddick’s incredible work has transformed our premises, allowing us to safely invite families in and expand our services beyond donations. We are extremely grateful to Caddick Construction and its Social Value Manager, Faye, for the unwavering support of the Little Green Sock Project.”

David Saville, Managing Director at Caddick Construction Group in the North West, comments: “Before we had even put a spade in the ground at Stretford Mall our teams spent time getting to know the community, including volunteering within local charities. Little Green Socks is a fantastic cause, situated just next door to our Stretford Mall development, and we are pleased to have been able to support Catherine and her team in this way – enabling them to focus their valuable time on the incredible work they do for families in the local area.

“As a registered member of the Considerate Constructors Scheme, we bring these commitments to all of our projects and with building work progressing at pace at Stretford Mall, I look forward to seeing what the team achieves in partnership with Bruntwood and Trafford Council.”
