Give and Gain Day 2015

Business in the Community’s Give & Gain Day, on Friday 15 May 2015, was a celebration of the incredible power of employee volunteering. Unprecedented numbers of people were out volunteering across the globe, championing the talent, skill and energy found in business and the role it can play in helping communities prosper.

Give and Gain day happens in 32 countries and this year it happened in Scawby. Nine volunteers arrived from the Gi group, some from Scunthorpe and others from as far away as Mansfield. They worked hard on the Village Green - painting the telephone kiosk, the bench and the water pump and railings. They edged the long footpath and pruned the trees. It was a beautiful day they sat on the grass and ate a picnic lunch and they took pride in a job well done at the end of the day. Thanks to Rebecca from BITC and Gemma from Gi Group.
