Staff from Allianz Insurance gave up a day in the office to visit Jigsaw during the half-term break to give our raised flowerbeds a much-needed makeover. The six volunteers from the Human Resources Division at the company’s UK headquarters in Guildford even donated £200 for the materials.
The team sanded and repainted the raised flowerbeds, making them look good in time for this year’s Guildford In Bloom competition. Pupils have been working enthusiastically on planting out the beds for the competition, and the Allianz work means they will look their best.
Teams from Allianz have been frequent volunteer visitors to Jigsaw in recent years, spending days on gardening and decorating. We are always very pleased to see them and benefit from their practical help!
Organisations say they see such days as valuable team building exercises. Employers interested in such opportunities can contact [email protected]
