Lots of small community groups are run by local volunteers who just simply don’t have the time or resources to undertake bigger pieces of work. This is where teams of employee volunteers can really help out by providing much needed people-power to help these groups get things done.
Just one such project was the external makeover at Bradenstoke Village Hall near Lyneham where a team of willing and eager volunteers from Nationwide put their painting skills to good use. Shirley Smith, Chair of Trustees from Bradenstoke said:
“The team from Nationwide came today to paint the back of the hall, what a great day we had, they were all so lovely and worked so hard. We had such a laugh and I think they all enjoyed working with us, but it might have been the lunch we gave them and all the homemade cakes and apple tart.
Some of the committee were on hand to make tea, coffee and soft drinks all day, we now have a wonderful back garden all painted and looking great, just the windows to do and then it will be finished.”
