Society Staff Members Volunteer at Woodland Park, Newport for Give & Gain Day

20 May 2016

Business in the Community’s Give & Gain Day is the only global day of employee volunteering. Now in its ninth year, the annual event is being marked by thousands of people from hundreds of companies who will be actively volunteering throughout the day on 20th May 2016.

The Society is proud to be taking part in Give & Gain Day by sending a group of staff members to volunteer at Woodland Park, Newport, planting in the orchard, helping to create a water channel, litter picking and cutting back overgrown areas.

With a large number of areas in need of maintenance, volunteers are vital to ensure Woodland Park is both clean and safe for the thousands of people who visit each year.

Chief Executive, Andrew Lewis, commented: “I’m delighted that our staff members were so keen to get involved in Give & Gain Day this year. As a member owned organisation with deeply entrenched links with the local community, we are committed to supporting local groups and projects, and Woodland Park is an asset to the city which is always in need of willing volunteers.”

“This event also gives staff an opportunity to work alongside colleagues from a wide range of departments across the business, and the teamwork will no doubt help us to bring new skills and a new perspective back into our workplace.”
