01 April 2022 15:39
A team of handy helpers from NI Water recently paid a visit to a community garden at Creggan Country Park, Derry/L’derry to help enhance current facilities.
It is part of NI Water’s ‘Cares Challenge’ project which is celebrating ten years as of one of the largest corporate volunteering schemes in the Province.
To date over 1,500 staff have volunteered in 100 challenges to date, equating to more than 10,000 hours of volunteering to help support communities across Northern Ireland.
As part of the 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.
In the latest project volunteers from across the organisation made a valuable contribution to the community garden at Creggan Country Park by planting beds, outdoor painting and general gardening projects which otherwise would have taken longer to complete.
