No5 Young Peoples Counselling, Reading

No5 offers free and confidential counselling to young people aged between 10 and 25.

Alyson Brickley, Operations Manager at No5 met A C Becks Contracts Manager, Mark Hill through a mutual friend. Alyson had heard of AC Becks help in the community initiative and agreed with Mark to strip and refurbish their existing Kitchen.

The work was carried out by Mark and A C Becks Carpenter, Stewart Richards, over a week long period through August 2014.


‘Just wanted to say a massive thank you for all your support with our kitchen refurbishment. The team who came to complete the work were really fabulous. They could not have been more helpful and fun. They worked incredibly hard to get everything done in time for us to open again after the Bank Holiday. They really did go over and above what we could have expected.

All our counsellors have said how great the kitchen now looks. It has opened up the space and made it so much more welcoming. We are all so pleased.

I want to thank you too for your generosity in paying for your guys to do the work for us and some of the materials. It means a great deal to us as we can now move on to improving our Waiting Room, rather than waiting to fundraise the money to do it. This will make such a difference to the young people who use our service. They have given us specific feedback on improving this area and you have made that possible’

Alyson Brickley, Operations Manager.
