AZ donate 1,000 days
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.”
