Business in the Community's Give & Gain Day is the UK’s only national day of employee volunteering and is a celebration of the incredible power of employee volunteering. Businesses across the UK are driven by legions of skilled and experienced staff, while community organisations, social enterprises, and schools across the country benefit from the support of business volunteers. By getting unprecedented numbers of people out volunteering across the UK and internationally, we’re championing the talent and energy found in our business and the role it can play in helping communities prosper.
In 2014 we had 100 employees across our locations involved in lots of activities such as clearing pathways, painting, re-furbishing play areas, food sampling with school children, football tournaments and even making bug hotels! The list is long and varied and all very worthwhile for our local communities.
We intend to increase our army of volunteers year on year to make each and every Give and Gain day the best ever!
