09 March 2020 15:00
A team of handy helpers from NI Water have recently paid a visit to the National Trust property Lisnabreeny to help enhance current facilities.
The enthusiastic team helped by planting trees and cutting back on invasive species including willow and rhododendron. Lisnabreeny takes in wooded glen, estate and green field to the summit of the Castlereagh hills on the edge of east Belfast.
The path hugs the sides of Cregagh glen as it climbs through pools of sunlight cast by the trees You’ll hear the waterfall, but also keep an eye out for the carpets of bluebell and wood anemone in spring.
Our Cares Challenge volunteering scheme continues to make a difference in our communities and has now helped over 90 charities and community groups with worthwhile projects.
As part of NI Water’s ‘Cares Challenge’ programme, activities are planned for various groups throughout Northern Ireland each year and are set up in partnership with Business in the Community’s NI Cares Programme. The programme identifies organisations and charities within the local community who need a helping hand with physical tasks such as gardening and painting.
NI Water’s volunteering policy increases the time employees can spend undertaking volunteering activities to help benefit the greater community.
