This week (1-7 June) marks Volunteers’ week, an annual celebration of volunteering in all its diversity. This year the theme is ‘volunteering for all’ and celebrates the huge range of people who give their time in so many ways.

Across our 20 offices at Cundall, volunteering brings us all together and allows us to give something back to the community.

People have been involved in all sorts of volunteering schemes ranging from education through our Inspiring the Next Generation scheme to helping clean up our environment in our Give and Gain Days or contributing to food charities as part of Harmony Day.

To celebrate volunteer’s week, here are just some of our Cundall volunteers and what they have been up to:

PlanBEE the new plan A

Rebekah Phillips writes about her involvement with the apprenticeship scheme as a Brand Ambassador

National Tree Day

Victoria Norris attended a local tree planting session in aid of Australia’s National Tree day. Read more about the work done in her blog.

Volunteering for LIVErNORTH and Wiping out wet wipes

Marian Godwin has been really busy volunteering for a number of charities. Her experience on the beach clean really highlighted the damage that wet wipes can have on the environment. Cundall was delighted to sponsor Marian’s tea party for LIVErNORTH too.

Inspiring the Next Generation

Our Inspiring the Next Generation initiative challenged our staff around the globe with a combined volunteering target of 700 hours. We are so close to hitting that, with a fantastic 668 logged. Helen Abernethy writes more about it.

Water, water, everywhere, nor any drop to drink

David Everington flew to Cambodia as part of the Xylem Water Drop initiative. His task was to help educate schools about hygiene, build a tower structure and plumb the water tower which can provide 10,000 litres of fresh clean water. Read about David’s experience in his blog.

Thank you to all of our staff who give their time for some fantastic causes.
