Skanska lend a hand to brighten up charity bibic in Langport

May 11, 2018 / All Events

11 volunteers from Skanska arrived at bibic to help brighten up a playroom as part of their fantastic ‘Lend a Hand Days’ scheme.

The playroom received a lovely fresh coat of paint as did the therapy rooms and the family room. Whilst other volunteers were hard at work weeding and planting beautiful flowers and herbs, donated by Kelways Garden Centre, ready to welcome the children and families who visit bibic’s National Assessment Centre in Langport.

Rachel Hill from Skanska said,
“The Lend a Hand Day was a fantastic opportunity to deliver our purpose and help a great cause. We chose bibic because they support a lot of families in the south west, particularly in Somerset. It’s a great charity and we thought we could really make a difference by painting and gardening, and we’re looking forward to going back to do more soon.”

Volunteer days or Lend a Hand Days as they are known at Skanska, are part of their Community Investment initiative which run throughout the business. This places them at the heart of many different communities, helping them to achieve their purpose ‘we build for a better society’.

Emma James, Head of Fundraising at bibic said,
“Thank you so much for your hard work Skanska and to Kelways Garden Centre for donating the plants! All the rooms look so fresh and much brighter for our families. The pots and beds look much better now that there are no weeds. And the flowers and herbs look great; we’ve put in place a watering rota, so we make the most of them as the months go by. We look forward to welcoming the Skanska team back again soon!”
