A team of staff volunteers from our London office got involved in Business in the Community's national day of employee volunteering 'Give and Gain Day 2014' by supporting Sportsinspired.
The purpose of the event was to inspire young people through discovering sport. The day involved 250 pupils from schools based in the Hackney area. Phoenix Group volunteers joined other company volunteers and encouraged the pupils to get involved and try something new. Sports on offer ranged from cricket, touch rugby, athletics, football, basketball to volleyball.
One Phoenix volunteer commented "Give and Gain was an absolutely amazing opportunity to give something back to our local community. It looked as though the children had a fun time playing the different sports, and it was great to be involved in this event."
Give and Gain Day 2014 involved 13,300 business volunteers from 186 companies.
