EM­PLOY­EES from As­traZeneca do­nated 1,000 days of their own time to help out char­i­ties and lo­cal groups.

The ini­tia­tive to get more em­ploy­ees in­volved in the lo­cal com­mu­nity kicked off at the be­gin­ning of 2016, with the com­pany en­cour­ag­ing em­ploy­ees to spend a day vol­un­teer­ing.

When As­traZeneca to­talled up their ef­forts, they were de­lighted to see more than 25 groups had ben­e­fited, with vol­un­teers help­ing to do a va­ri­ety of things, from paint­ing and dec­o­rat­ing to build­ing and gar­den­ing.

An­drew Hig­gins, com­mu­ni­ca­tions di­rec­tor, said: “Get­ting in­volved in our com­mu­nity is good for the char­i­ties and great for the in­di­vid­u­als. It helps build teams and al­lows our peo­ple to re­ally make a dif­fer­ence to good causes.”
