On Friday 16 June, Hawsons staff enjoyed a day out helping the Sheffield based charity, Endeavour, by carrying out various tasks such as gardening, cleaning, stripping paint and even dismantling a canoe rack.
Endeavour have been working with some of England’s disadvantaged, disaffected and forgotten young people for more than sixty years by providing challenges and inspiration to help them rebuild their futures. The organisation has grown over the years to focus not only on literacy and academic development but also outdoor challenge. The aim is to help young people develop the skills they need to thrive in society.
Below are some photos taken from the day:
Graham Booth, Corporate Engagement Manager for Endeavour, had this to say: “It was brilliant having the team from Hawsons come and help out at Endeavour. Groups of volunteers such as these are always extremely valuable in helping us keep the building maintained, but this was a particularly good group and really hard working. We are looking forward to hosting the next two teams.”
Friday was the first out of three days that our staff will be helping out at Endeavour, and they are looking forward to lending a hand in any way they can during the final two days. There’s still plenty of work to be done!
