Fat Macy’s is a charity based in Shoreditch, East London, offering people living in temporary accommodation a pathway to move from hostel to home. It has been operating since 2016 and over the years has helped over 100 individuals, with many successfully securing employment and housing after completing the programme. When the call-out came for help with a major refurbishment programme for the premises, Click Scolmore donated the range of wiring accessories required for the electrical upgrade aspect of the project.
The five-story building is home to a restaurant and natural wine bar, complete with co-working space for third-party enterprises. It also acts as the headquarters for the charity, which uses the restaurant as a pathway to move people experiencing homelessness from hostel to home.
The refurbishment works were carried out on the restaurant and upstairs offices, covering everything from the basement restaurant and kitchens to the ground floor restaurant, dry goods store, and beyond. All the work was carried out free of charge, allowing the charity to continue doing what it does best; empowering and uplifting people through training, employment, and support.
The products supplied by Click Scolmore were from the Mode, Deco Plus and Metal Clad ranges. Click Mode is a range of contemporary white wiring accessories with a smooth profile and antimicrobial properties. Several one and two-gang switched sockets, one-gang, two-way light switches and 13A switched fused connection units were installed in a number of areas throughout the premises – back of house, office and kitchen. From the Deco Plus range of premium decorative metal wiring accessories, several switches and sockets in the stainless steel finish with black inserts were chosen for the restaurant/dining area. Selected for their durability and utilitarian appearance were one and two-gang sockets from the Click Metal Clad range, which features electrophoretically coated plates and back boxes to provide a long-lasting, heavy-duty finish.
