Southern Electric staff had a wild time with the UK Wolf Conservation Trust
EMPLOYEES from Southern Electric got close to nature as they helped out at the UK Wolf Conservation Trust as part of the company’s employee volunteering scheme.
The 19 employees from the company’s Edison House and Chailey Court offices, in Winchester Road, Basingstoke, rolled up their sleeves to build a new bridge and pond as well as paint fences and picnic benches to help improve the charity’s facilities at Beenham, in West Berkshire, for both wolves and visitors.
UK Wolf Conservation Trust is popular with Southern Electric staff, with 62 employees dedicating time to the charity over the past two years through the company’s Community at Heart scheme. This lets every staff member have a day away from their normal work duties to help out in their local community.
Among the team was Trudi Bevan, group resolver for major business services, who has organised two visits over the last year. She said: “Last year, a team from the company did great work with this charity, creating new falconry pens which formed part of a brand new visitor attraction.
“The enjoyment they received from the day inspired me to get some fellow colleagues together and organise further help this year. Although the days involved hard work, everyone really enjoyed their time immensely. The positive impact the changes will make to the residents of the park and visitors made our time there even more rewarding.”
Tara Armstrong, from the trust, said: “The teams were brilliant and the help was much appreciated.”
