A team of 5 volunteers from Ecclesiatical Insurance have embraced their entitlement to volunteer by spending a day at a Gloucestershire bird centre that specialises in birds of prey and nature conservation. The team, headed up by Claire, were delighted to make good use of their ESV time and had an enjoyable and rewarding day all round.
Claire said, ‘We were very well supported by Helen at the centre. She communicated very well before the day and on the actual challenge she came in on her day off to help us with the activities, so was with us all of the day for support. She gave us a tour of the centre, provided all the equipment we needed and was an excellent host!’
‘We really felt we were contributing to the charity, and we learnt a lot about their work. We also very much benefitted from team building on the day.’
About Involve Gloucestershire, she added, ‘We would definitely use the service again to find volunteering opportunities in the future!’
