Business in the Community’s Give & Gain Day is the only global day of employee volunteering. Now in its ninth year, it will see thousands of people from hundreds of companies volunteering on 20 May 2016, and the Beverley Racecourse team will be amongst them.
Volunteering is an exchange. An exchange of knowledge, skills, enthusiasm, and passion. It’s
conversations with people you wouldn’t normally speak to – colleagues you’ve only ever seen in
the lift, and people doing amazing work in community organisations. It’s everybody gaining from
Give & 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. By getting unprecedented numbers of people out
volunteering across the UK and internationally, we’re championing the talent and energy found in
business and the role it can play in helping communities prosper.
In recognition of the outstanding beauty of the surroundings we are based in, for our first year taking part in Give & Gain the team will be doing a litter pick on the Westwood for the day and anyone who would like to join us is very welcome.
Give & Gain Day is an opportunity for us all to celebrate what business volunteers can achieve together. Find out more here.
