“Volunteering to help any worthy cause is hugely rewarding, but to be given the chance to do it by my employer in ‘work time’ is a real privilege. I find it incredibly rewarding as I can often see the immediate benefit either through the change in the site we’re working on when we’re painting or gardening, as well as the feedback from residents in the same scenario or when we’re on a day out with them. They talk with real fondness about previous events that illustrates how much it has meant to them. A few hours of our time, energy and enthusiasm can brighten up others lives for days.”
