Proud to be a Volunteer

 

Corporate Volunteering

Spend a day away from your office. Great for team building whilst benefitting your local countryside and parks.

"I, on behalf of my entire team would like to thank you for the great opportunity you afforded us last Wednesday. Thank you for the help and guidance you provided, in what was both an enjoyable and rewarding day with you both. Hopefully we did you proud and made a real difference to the ongoing struggle with the Balsam plant in Daisy Nook. 

We have already spread the good work you guys are doing at Tameside Council and look forward to a continuation of the good relationship we have hopefully built.We didn’t do badly for Office workers!"
