We’re proud of the work that our Armed Forces do to protect our country and our staff are proud to volunteer within the military community. We’re committed to send each member of our staff for at least one volunteer day per year.
Recently, 12 members of our Regional Prime South West Op’s Delivery and Area team and the Contract Support Finance team got together with the Pastoral team at the RNAS Yeovilton Chaplaincy. They worked together to assist in giving The Sanctuary, their Chaplaincy building, a well needed make over.
The team worked hard fixing the decking area, decorating walls and woodwork as well as redecorating and repairing the offices and entrance hall inside the chaplaincy. The ceiling lights had also been given a modern update with pendant lights and shades. The materials were provided by the Padre having obtained a grant funding from our charity partners at SSAFA, The Armed Forces charity, who we have now raised over £150,000 for.
Our Supply Chain colleagues from Boden Group Facilities also assisted by lending ladders, providing tools and consumables. ISS also ensured the grass areas were newly mowed around the exterior of the plot. The site Buffers party and a team from Hangar 10 had all helped with some of the prep work to give the teams a head start. Our staff will be heading back in July to complete the works.
