A group of 10 volunteers from communications firm Vodafone spent Tuesday helping in the community.
The team, all managers for the company’s corporate internet service, joined forces with White Waltham Parish Council at Woodlands Park Centre in Manifold Way.
They built a raised flowerbed and sandpit for children and painted part of the community centre. They also helped the council find better ways getting information out to the public, including putting the centre on Facebook and Twitter.
The day was part of Vodafone’s ‘Giving Something Back’ scheme, which sees every employee given three days a year to volunteer in the community. It was organised by the company Volunteering Matters.
Team leader Paul Kersley said: “We agree with our employees that it’s important to donate Vodafone’s time and our work to the community.”
Mums and children joined the volunteers for cakes and drinks and to try out the new sandpit and plant some bulbs.
