The gift of time
Teams of Society volunteers are supporting a range of community projects across the West Midlands.
Giving money is one thing, but the West Brom also believes in giving time to community causes via our volunteering programme.
So far in 2019, some 120 colleagues have taken part in a broad range of projects.
Art Kart, for instance, at Birmingham Children’s Hospital where the Society’s staff use art activities to alleviate the tedium and tension children can feel while waiting in the outpatients’ department for their appointment.
We’ve also established close ties with Queen Alexandra College in Birmingham, which caters for young people with visual impairments and learning disabilities. Here, our staff have assisted on gardening projects and were also involved in the College’s sports day for disabled students.
There was the help we provided at the White House Cancer Support in Dudley, together with the environmental enhancement work we carried out at Saltwells Nature Reserve near Merry Hill and a dementia garden at Rowley Regis Hospital.
These are established partnerships which, along with newer schemes, will continue to offer volunteering opportunities for staff over the summer and into the autumn.
They bring so many benefits – for the charities, our staff, and the West Brom, reflecting values that, along with our other community endeavours, really embody a belief in the spirit of mutuality.
