The Commercial Cement Team descended en-mass on the Action for Children’s Parklands Campus near Oxford on 9th June for their annual Lend-A-Hand Day.
This is a special needs school providing day, residential and outreach services to young people aged 11 to 19 who need extra help and support to find their place in life. The school has charitable status and receives no funding from central government as such they rely on donations and fund raising along with Lend-A-Hand day initiatives from companies such as ours.
Andrew Mills, Area Sales Manager, commented: “The gloriously sunny Oxfordshire day was spent painting the 100 metres or more of perimeter wall to their skate park, clearing the gutter alongside the sports hall which had become full of leaves, moss and other debris (causing problems with damp) and generally helping to maintain the grounds which run to approximately 20 acres. The Team put in a real shift and exceeded all expectations as to the amount of work completed. The value of the day to the school was clearly evident in the hospitality shown to us by Tracey and Richard from Action for Children and I believe we have set the bar at a new high for other companies who visit here in the future.
I think I can speak for all of the Team in saying that the whole day was a most rewarding experience and I would want to thank them all for their efforts and good humour on the day.”
