Fourteen Amazon Filters colleagues have gone hands-on to help a Surrey primary school improve its playground.
Thanks to our team’s voluntary input, pupils at Sandringham Infant Academy in Frimley are now able to play on brighter, fresher equipment.
The initiative, a community action day brokered by charity CMPP, the Community Matters Partnership Project, included painting and improving play facilities such as climbing walls as well as decking, benches and fencing.
The school is just two miles from our head office and production centre at Albany Park in Frimley.
As a business partner of CMPP, we provide volunteering opportunities for our 220 Frimley-based staff working across a wide range of job disciplines, both factory and office-focused.
Ruth Pappadakis, our Head of Human Resources, said: “Many of our employees live locally and are keen to give something back to the community.
“On this occasion it was a joy for so many colleagues to have the opportunity to roll up their sleeves and help a nearby school.
“We find that offering the chance of community volunteering encourages staff wellbeing, workplace values and company culture.
“At the same time, it means that together we strengthen our community connections and do our bit for worthwhile local projects.”
Several of our volunteers have said how much they enjoyed their day helping out at Sandringham Infant Academy.
As well as community action days and school support, CMPP brokers corporate participation in environmental clean-ups and charity fundraising initiatives.
