Time spent serving our community is time well spent.
As part of our commitment to increasing access to the outdoors for everyone, our employees spent more than 700 hours volunteering in 2022.
“Our Customer Services team joined Peak Mountaineering for a day of litter picking and climbing. We met at a popular Peak District area notorious for litter. I said from the start that due to my fear of heights, I wouldn’t go climbing or abseiling. But eventually, through the support of my team, I overcame these fears and did both. A great day of good work and victories.”
- Rahil Kar, Sales Office Supervisor
Volunteers from the marketing team spent a day at Dukes Barn Outdoor Activity Centre, on the Chatsworth estate. The centre’s primary focus is children with special needs and those from disadvantaged backgrounds.
“Our first job was to clear out the nearby stream of debris, making it safe and enjoyable for children to use for outdoor activities.”
- Richard Lovewell, Digital Marketing Manager
Our US team linked up with Boulder Climbing Community to preserve a popular crag in Boulder, Colorado close to our US office.
They helped to reinforce a retaining wall, built a belay platform for one of the canyon’s most popular sport climbs and enhanced the approach trail to reduce erosion.
“We worked up in Boulder Canyon for the day at an area called Avalon. To get there, we had to cross the river using the Tyrolean traverse and scramble up the talus field.”
