This year our Greencore Food to Go Commercial team in Northampton spent their annual away day at the head office of the Cynthia Spencer Hospice. Cynthia Spencer Hospice provides specialist palliative care services for South Northamptonshire, offering specialist physical, psychological, social and spiritual care to those with life limiting illnesses.
The away day was themed around giving something back to the community, so they held their meeting in their Business Hub in the morning and then spent the afternoon volunteering. The team was involved in four different activities that will help raise money for the Hospice: sorting the donations they receive, listing items on eBay, upcycling furniture and crafting.
The team threw themselves into the volunteering and as well as enjoying themselves, found the day to be immensely rewarding. A true demonstration of People at the Core!
Our efforts were greatly appreciated by Louise Danielczuk, Community and Corporate Fundraiser at Cynthia Spencer who said:
“It was a brilliant day and the help you gave us has made such a massive difference already!!!
You were all a brilliant bunch of people and we are soooo grateful to you for everything you have done for us, please do pass on our thanks to all of your team.”
