Employees have a variety of opportunities to volunteer together, both with and for local community and voluntary organisations.
We work in partnership with over 50 organisations who rely on the practical support of volunteers to help make their grounds and buildings look their best.
Team Challenges are a fantastic way of giving something back to your local community, whilst providing motivational, team-building opportunities for your employees.
