Thanks to the valiant Vanquis volunteers
We were delighted to welcome 16 staff from Vanquis Bank to CPotential yesterday.
They swapped their usual jobs dealing with complicated legal compliance issues to brighten up our Centre.
Led by David Price, Senior Compliance Officer, and Abi Ticehurst (both centre in the photo above) the team got stuck into a variety of jobs: painting the playground fence in our brand colours, freshening up our playground shed and benches, some heavy duty weeding and lawn mowing.
David said: “I’d come to CPotential a few years ago with another team. I’m delighted to be back, this time bringing colleagues from both our Chatham and London offices.
“Through the Vanquis Active Community Programme, we can choose local projects and causes to support. I’d given a presentation about the great work CPotential does and it enthused a bunch of my colleagues to sign up for the day.
“It was great to do the ‘makeover’ outside and, best of all, to meet the children, some of whom lent a hand with the painting!”
Simon Carruth, our Acting CEO, said: “We are all hugely grateful to the Vanquis team for giving their time, energy and dedication today, especially as it was a very hot day. The tremendous work they’ve done in our playground and garden has brought new life to the Centre, making it an even more fun environment for the children.”
Below are some photos to give you a flavour of the amazing transformation the team did.
- We’d love to hear from more companies, who’d like to support our services.
