On Friday, September 18th, 2015, the ACIRPE Valdocco insertion worskhops team celebrated the opening of its new premises in Francheville (Rhône-Alpes region). Solidarity Accor and the Mercure Lyon Charbonnières teams supported this development project. 

Cindy, Dominique and Boualem, insertion project employees, gave guests a tour of the premises, inviting them to discover the various areas reserved for collection and recovery activities concerning various materials: plastics, corks, bread, etc. Having taken part in the renovation work for the premises, they were proud to tell them all about the operation of the new workshop that will allow them to turn professional.

The inauguration ceremony continued with speeches by members of the charity and local officials. Michel Rantonnet, Mayor of Francheville, stressed in particular how "important it is to exploit locally those actions enabling people far from employment to return to the road to independence".
