On Wednesday 17th July 2019, the Leadership team from Mayflex, the distributor of Converged IP Solutions, spent a day volunteering for the Community Environmental Trust. A charity that uses horticulture to help children and the elderly learn how to grow & cook healthy, nutritious food.
The team worked in groups around the site in Castle Vale, Birmingham, taking on practical tasks that the charity had little time to do. From creating a colourful fairy garden, laying accessible pathways, building raised beds, improving growing space in the poly-tunnel & constructing new picnic tables to name but a few of the tasks.
The 18 members of the Leadership team were led by Andrew Percival, Managing Director. Andrew commented “It felt rewarding to do something that clearly made a difference & see the great work that this small local charity does for the community.”
Andrew concluded “It was great opportunity to bring our management team together from across the World. We spent the Tuesday meeting and discussing the business and then the Wednesday doing physical work for the charity, which also provided a great team building activity.”
Ben from the charity was delighted by the efforts of the team. “We’d never have been able to do what you’ve done for us today. All the tasks make such a difference to the site and allow us to spend more time with the people we really need to help. I’m delighted you chose to help us. Thank you so much Mayflex.”
Clare Lundberg, Mayflex HR Director said “I hope by us all getting involved it inspires other people across the business to think about volunteering and using their time to help other local charities.”
