A group of carpenters have joined hands to provide free professional services to government-run homes, hospitals and other institutions. The aim of the venture is to work for the betterment of the poor and marginalised in the city.

The group, comprising 20 carpenters, repaired furniture at the home for visually challenged children, run by Guild of Services here on Thursday.

“We were happy when children at the home appreciated our service,” said Karthikeyan, who took the lead to organise carpenters of the city to form a group and render free services. Karthikeyan said the impetus was provided by the glue manufacturing company, Fevicol, adding that around 50, three-decade-old, tables and desks at the home were repaired using materials provided by the company.

Fevicol, with an objective to fulfil its corporate social responsibility, had formed the Fevicol Champion Club (FCC) in many cities and towns across the country. “We have joined the club to render social service in whatever capacity possible,” he said, adding, “We consider this to be of immense value both to our lives and profession.”

Encouraged by the enthusiasm of his colleagues, he plans to network carpenters across the district to create awareness and involve them in social activities.
