 Corporate Volunteering

Corporate volunteering is a great way to inspire your employees to make a visible impact within their community. The benefits of corporate volunteering for your employees are vast; research shows employees who regularly dedicate time to charitable causes learn new skills, strengthen team relations and become more proficient in leadership and decision making.

Put the talents of your team to good use; arrange a one off visit or book multiple visits and see a project come to life. The possibilities are endless and we are willing to work with you and the strengths of your team to arrange volunteering opportunities that are mutually beneficial to you and us. Our Corporate volunteering scheme is free, however we do welcome donations.      

Demonstrate your organisations commitment to creating positive change within the charity sector; spend time engaging with your Corporate Social Responsibility by raising your own brand awareness, building social capital and creating trust with your customers and employees.

RBS, UPS, Ford and Natwest are all among our regular corporate volunteers at Hadleigh Farm Estate. Over the past year they have helped us prune hedges, paint fences and litter pick, tasks completed in days that would have taken our team months.
