£10,000 community giveaway

SEH BAC has chosen the winning community building to receive its competition prize of £10,000 worth of windows and doors.

The Suffolk-based installer launched the giveaway to help a community building in desperate need and to commemorate over 45 years of trading. SEH BAC received scores of excellent nominations but after careful review, announced the winning community building as the West Cliff Theatre in Clacton-on-Sea.

Founded in 1894, the West Cliff Theatre welcomes 35,000 visitors through their doors every year. With all grants stopped, the theatre is completely self-funded and relies mostly on voluntary staff, support and donations through its own charity shop to continue operating.

“We wanted to do a charity giveaway to say thank you to the public for supporting us for over 45-years,” commented SEH BAC managing director John Savage. “We are thrilled to be able to, in turn, support a wonderful cause like the West Cliff Theatre in Clacton. New windows and doors will ensure that the much-loved theatre in the community can continue operating for future generations to enjoy.”

SEH BAC will begin work transforming the theatre and replacing the windows and doors in 2017. The renovation will not only improve the building itself but help to reduce the running costs of the theatre using the latest, energy efficient windows and doors.
