BTG takes part in Give & Gain Day

Staff join in local community projects on national day of employee volunteering

BTG plc, the specialist healthcare company, participated in this year’s Give & Gain Day, with employees from its Camberley-based office volunteering to be part of community projects in Farnham, Wokingham and Hook.

Give & Gain Day, organised by Business in the Community, is the UK’s only national day of volunteering, with lots of companies signing up to give something back to their local communities. This is the second year BTG has taken part.  Last week, more than 40 BTG staff committed their time and skills to helping the following community projects:

  • Sue Ryder Charity shop ‘Store Wars’ – two teams went head-to-head at two different Sue Ryder charity shops in Farnham and Wokingham to raise as much money as possible for the charity.
  • The Woodlarks Centre – a care home and activity centre in Farnham where everyone got involved in painting and gardening activities.
  • The Gordon Brown Centre – an outdoor environmental education centre in Hook where BTG staff repaired shelters, benches and fences.

Julie Sayegh-Copeland, Office Manager at BTG’s Camberley site, said: “It’s been a pleasure to take part in Give & Gain Day and give our time to some of the very commendable projects and charities that are local to us.

“This year we pit a couple of our BTG Give & Gain teams against each other to run two Sue Ryder stores in Farnham and Wokingham. The ask was to raise £500 per store and both teams smashed their targets before they had even stepped through the shop doors to start selling. We’ve collected more than £7,000 for the Sue Ryder charity.”
