Corporate Volunteering Opportunities
We are happy to hear from local companies who wish to volunteer with Hammersmith Community Gardens Association.
Many companies have pledged their support for the redevelopment of the Glasshouses in Ravenscourt Park – we welcome your donation, however big or small it would be gratefully received! Pledge towards our fundraising campaign at: https://www.spacehive.com/31651 before 12th Aug 2019.
We can offer challenges at all times of the year and tailor activities to suit the size of your group. On each site there are several tasks to be completed and so individuals are able to work in areas of interest or skill. We can provide either half or full day challenges as well as extras such as lunch or an end-of-day massage. We are happy to come and brief the team at your workplace prior to the event. Ideally we would like a month’s notice to organise the session but can often offer some activities at short notice.
Companies we work with include: Timberland, Taylor Woodrow, Brook Lyndhurst, British Standards Institute, HSBC, BBC, the FA and Bet Fair.
We have found that companies often like to develop an on-going relationship working on specific sites and come back year after year to help it develop.
Corporate volunteering makes a big impact on our work, the local community and green spaces in Hammersmith and Fulham. If you would like to discuss this further please contact the Operations Manager.
