As part of our CSR programme, we organise a community action day each year. Our staff including associated businesses join together and spend a day in the local community. This includes giving up their day in the office to help out across all sectors including school, care homes, city farms, respite and half-way homes along with YMCA’s.
Our work is with local project and charities where the help can make a difference whether this is DIY, shopping and reading assistance, playground repairs, grass cutting and even manure shovelling.
The time organising and allocated to the community amounts to over £350,000 per annum, however, the community gains are far greater in terms of the outcome because of the benefit to the people it helps.
