A team of 20 energetic new recruits from Vodafone in Newbury recently dedicated an entire day of their induction period to volunteer for leading Hampshire-based disability charity Enham Trust.
Together with the charity’s Garden Services Team, the group completed a variety of tasks on the Trust’s home estate in Enham Alamein, including; re-painting the gates outside of the newly renovated Montgomery House, weeding flower beds, and clearing the pathways that run through the village to ensure Enham Trust’s disabled clients have a clear route through which to travel across the village, increasing their independence.
Vodafone is keen to encourage volunteering so every employee is entitled to take 24 hours paid leave to give something back to their communities.
“Almost every month recently, Vodafone have been sending groups of volunteers to Enham Trust,” explains Enham Trust’s Volunteer Team Leader Ryan Pooles. “This is a tremendous help to the charity and ensures we can continue to support as many disabled people as possible to live independently. The relationship between Enham Trust and Vodafone is of incredible value and we’d like to thank the company, and the volunteers, for all their hard work.”
Enham Trust supports over 7,500 disabled and disadvantaged people across the country to live lives of choice, control and independence.
