Thank you to Jenny Boland and her colleagues Vanessa and Helen from Allianz who came to volunteer at St Johns Hospice Edenvale Retail Warehouse last week as part of their corporate volunteering programme. This was their second volunteering visit!
They diligently sorted the many games and jigsaws that have been donated, making sure that all the pieces were there before packaging them up for distribution to our shops.
This painstaking work was a tremendous help to our warehouse team who are tasked with sorting through donations of all shapes and sizes for the 11 St John’s shops.
Elaine Handy, Warehouse Manager said
‘a big thank you to Vanessa, Jenny and Helen who did a great job. Hopefully we will see them again soon!”
Volunteers are incredibly special to us and save us over £1million every year. They also give St John’s Hospice a unique atmosphere. St John’s was built by the people for the people and today it continues to be maintained by the people too.
The Allianz team hope to come back again soon for more corporate volunteering.
