MHI Vestas Offshore Wind have generously donated six state-of-the-art desks to Independent Arts in May 2019.
Production Director for MHI Vestas Offshore UK, James Luter responded to a request for surplus office furniture and was pleased to donate the desks to the charity.
“It’s great to know that these desks will assist Independent Arts who do fantastic work reaching out to vulnerable members of the community,’ says James
The height-adjustable desks allow you to stand as well as sit which can help promote good back care as well as providing flexibility if you have to work for long periods sitting down.
“The desks are brilliant and we feel very fortunate to have been given them by MHI Vestas. They will make a much better working environment for staff and volunteers and the sit-stand function is a great option to promote healthier alternatives to sitting for long-periods of time," says Hannah Griffiths, Project Manager at Independent Arts.
MHI Vestas Offshore Wind mission is to co-develop offshore wind as an economically viable and sustainable energy resource to benefit future generations.
