Team Challenges

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.

Community Challenges: transform community buildings and urban green spaces on a one-off project. Half and full day opportunities run all year round for our full members. For more information, please read our Challenges Case Study.

Big Community Challenge: volunteer alongside other local businesses to makeover a local community space in just three days. In the run up to Big Community Challenge 2018, check out our latest blog to find out everything we’ll be doing this year and see how preparations are coming along. To find out more about everything the Big Community Challenge involves, have a look at our new 2018 Case Study.
