Cambridge BID volunteers for EACH

Members of Cambridge Business Improvement District (BID) were invited by EACH to a corporate volunteer day at Milton. Here they recount their day

We were thrilled when East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) invited us to join them at the Milton Hospice for a Corporate Volunteer Day and delighted to be joined by staff from Hotel Felix, Ta Bouche and CAMBAC. The day started with a briefing by their fundraising manager, Karen Newton who gave us a little bit of background about the charity, how they support children and families in the region and also how the Duchess of Cambridge came to be the patron.

We were then given a tour of the grounds and introduced to the garden shed which soon became our home from home! We split off into two groups and were given free rein to tidy up the garden area, playground and car park.  

We raked, dug, swept and swept a bit more! The time flew by and by the end of day we had made quite a difference to the outside area of the hospice.  

We found it a really incredible experience and one that we would recommend to any individual or business. It really shows what can be achieved when you take time out from the normal everyday to do something for other people. For more information about EACH or to donate please visit their website.
