Last week I attended the Give and Gain day at Cornist School. This fun day saw the launch of balloons to celebrate the day, which I helped to launch.
Give and Gain Day is the only global day of employee volunteering. Now in its ninth year, it saw thousands of people from hundreds of companies volunteering. Give and Gain Day is a celebration of the incredible power of employee volunteering. Businesses are driven by legions of skilled and experienced staff; community organisations, social enterprises and schools can benefit from their support.
The day followed on from Kingspan had volunteered 60 staff to help run the day and them constructing a play area for the school.
Being able to see businesses and people coming together to help each other really reinforces to me how strong our community is in Flintshire.
I want to say thank you to the 60 volunteers from Kingspan for making the day a brilliant one. The balloon launch went without a hitch and saw hundreds of balloons float away to mark the day.
If you find a balloon do return it for a prize.
