Baldwins team support Volunteering Week for local charities
At the start of July,198 volunteering hours were donated by the team at city accountancy firm Baldwins, who were given the opportunity to take a paid day out of the office to help local charities as part of the firm’s commitment to community volunteering.
Three charities were selected and the team were divided between the projects which included improving the community space available at Vivacity Central Library through cleaning, maintenance and painting; helping to transform public flower beds into attractive areas for the local communities that live in the Gladstone area with Community First and providing a meal for the homeless, lonely and vulnerable at the Millfield Community Kitchen.
“For the fourth year in a row we have worked with local charities to offer them our assistance on projects they may not otherwise have the funds or time to complete”, said Mark Jackson, partner at Baldwins. “It’s a fantastic initiative which is always well supported by staff who enjoy giving back to the local community.”
To complete the charitable week, a determined team of four completed the 3 Peaks Challenge over 3 consecutive days to raise funds for the Peterborough Hospital Oncology Department.
