Here, we take a look at what the team has been up to and the impact their hard work has made:
Manchester Central Foodbank
Six of the team from Sophos in Manchester spent a day supporting a local food bank. Manchester Central Foodbank provides three days’ of nutritionally balanced emergency food and support to local people who are referred to them in a crisis. They are part of a nationwide network of foodbanks working to combat poverty and hunger across the UK.
14 team members based around Sophos’ Abingdon office visited Prior’s Court to renovate the entrance way and car park for the centre’s young adult cottages. Prior’s Court is a charity specialising in education and residential care for young people with complex autism.
Over the course of the day the team moved five tonnes of bark, packed away 8,000 thousand balls from the ball pool and transformed the flowerbeds into a welcoming environment.
Heaton Park, Manchester
Heaton Park is a public park in Manchester, England, covering an area of over 600 acres. It’s a place of significance for the local community and many of Sophos’ Manchester-based employees. It relies on volunteers to keep it maintained and free for the community to access and enjoy.
The Sophos team helped with gardening tasks such as pulling Himalayan Balsam and thistle, enjoyed a good workout in the sun, and even got a tour of Heaton Hall.
