A CEMEX Lendahand volunteering day took place at RSPB Middleton Lakes near Tamworth, making the total of hours volunteered by employees through the Lendahand scheme to over 1200 hours.
The Lendahand volunteering scheme enables CEMEX employees the opportunity to take time off work to help in the community while being paid by the company. The 13 volunteers from the UK Aggregate business spent time at RSPB Middleton Lakes clearing areas and making major repairs.
“‘The team from Cemex was brilliant. The fencing of a silt lagoon at our main visitor area was essential in allowing safe access onto this part of the reserve. The job they achieved was critical, as it allowed us to safely open up the ‘play meadow’ area for our young visitors. The team worked really hard and achieved a great result. Thank you Lendahand!” comments Dr. Stefan Bodnar RSPB Middleton Lakes.
“There is no doubt that it was a physically hard day, and very different from our normal day-to-day work. We all thoroughly enjoyed it and it was so rewarding. It’s good to know that our work will contribute and ensure that local people can safely visit and enjoy Middleton Lakes.” Says Rob Doody, Director Aggregate Operations.
CEMEX organises days at nature reserves and wildlife trusts such as the one at Middleton Lakes on a regular basis but colleagues can also choose their own charity. For example, the CEMEX senior management team has assisted at the Bluebell Hospice, Sheffield with repairs, painting and decorating.
