Matthew Tree moves premises





The Matthew Tree Project is leaving the Inns Court Centre to move to Filwood Broadway by the end of the year.

The charity provides a number of support services in the area including a Food Plus Centre and cookery classes.

Chief Executive Mark Goodway said The Matthew Tree Project would “remain completely committed to the people and the area of Filwood and Inns Court despite this change of operational location…”

He said: “The essential services pioneered and developed by The Matthew Tree Project will continue to support the most disadvantaged members of the local Filwood community from its base located at 10 Filwood Broadway.”

On Monday Mr Goodway took part in a fundraiser to help with the office move – by doing 100 press ups.

He raised over £500 which will go towards the costs of transferring from Inns Court to the new base at Filwood Broadway.

He said: “I’m glad it’s over but I’m grateful to everyone who sponsored me.”
