The SHS Group recently took part in ‘Give & Gain’ Week. Teams across the Group took time out to volunteer with local schools, community groups, charities and social economies.
Give and Gain Week provides businesses with the opportunity to let their teams experience the incredible power of employee volunteering. Each year, thousands of people around the world give up their day jobs, roll up their sleeves and support a local community organisation or charity.
Volunteering is a mutually beneficial experience. It brings benefits to both the person volunteering and to the people and organisations that they support. Local organisations and groups we supported during the week included:
Activities undertaken ranged from putting together food packs for the homeless, to providing gardening support to community groups and volunteering at animal sanctuaries.
A big thank you to everyone within the SHS Group who volunteered and of course our community partners who supported the initiative. The efforts have enhanced services for those who need them most within the local community. Collectively we donated 371 volunteering hours across the week which is a fantastic example of our ‘Stronger Together’ value in action!
