NI Water Helps Foyle Hospice
17 June 2014 14:30
A team of handy helpers from NI Water have recently paid a visit to the Foyle Hospice in Londonderry to help enhance current facilities.
Volunteers from across the organisation tended to various garden areas around the hospice by spraying and removing weeds and planting two dozen flowers.
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. The ‘Cares Challenge’ has been a huge success and continues to grow in strength with volunteering hours nearing 3,000!
