Volunteers have helped dig deep at the The Children’s Centre’s Community Farm.
11 staff from Old Mutual International spent a day at the farm creating flower beds, potato beds, laying chicken wire to provide grip on boardwalks, and built a path.
The volunteering exercise is part of a range of Old Mutual International initiatives to support local charities, and help communities prosper.
During 2018 staff took part in several beach cleans for the Beach Buddies charity, and earlier this month the company announced a three year project to make a significant impact to improve the lives of young carers here on the Island by supporting the Crossroads Care charity.
Old Mutual International aims to raise £60,000 to expand the scope of Crossroads Care’s Young Carers Project.
Funded by initial donations from the company, a Young Carers’ Support Worker will be appointed, and a Young Carers’ Festival held in July 2019.
