26 April 2012 16:35
NI Water has recently launched its 2012 ‘Cares Challenge’. The Challenge, set up in partnership with Business in the Community’s NI Cares Programme, identifies organisations within the local community who need a helping hand with physical tasks such as gardening and painting.
Ronan Larkin, Director of Finance and Regulation at NI Water participated in the third of twelve activities set up throughout Northern Ireland:
“We have recently introduced a new and improved volunteering policy within the company which recognises that for many years, a significant number of our employees have given their time to assist worthwhile causes and charities.
“In line with this, we launched our ‘Cares Challenge’ programme of volunteering activities throughout 2012. The new policy increases the time employees can spend undertaking volunteering activities during working hours to help benefit the greater community.
“A group of colleagues, including myself recently volunteered at Deramore House in Newry, helping them to maintain and care for this much loved local asset.”
The activities are planned for various groups throughout Northern Ireland and will be led by a member of NI Water's Executive Committee/Board with up to 14 colleagues joining them from around the business.
