nmcn brings Positive Impact to Parkside High CIC

24th July 2019

At nmcn, we are committed to delivering a positive impact on everything we touch. As a business, we’re passionate about helping the communities in which we work and live in order to create a lasting legacy.

Paul Depadova, Chris Gould, Joe Millward, John Millward and Karl Craddock from our Water business unit spent 3 full days volunteering for Parkside High CIC. They helped to complete ‘Garden 61’ which will become a vital tool to the charity in youth mentoring, along with other activities on-site, as well as a big part in the local community.

Parkside High CIC is a charity working across Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire who specialise in supporting children and young people aged 6-18. They deliver workshops in schools, children’s centres and out in the community. The team are committed to working with young people to develop confidence and resilience and to achieve their dreams and ambitions regardless of personal circumstances.

The activity included:

  • Loading in and a levelling 30Ts of stone
  • Border edgings (ready for the tarmac to be laid)
  • A new fence
  • A disabled ramp
  • A breakout area with 6 telegraph poles (which will have a roof installed for storage and shelter)
  • Water and ducting feeds to the breakout area

 

Liam Parker, Director from Parkside High CIC commented: “Myself, Emily and all the children and young people we work with at Garden 61, would like to pass a huge thank you to Paul and the team for their efforts.”

“Paul together with Chris, Joe, John and Karl were professional and dedicated to the cause across the three days. The work they carried out pushed the project forward massively, as we are working hard to get the garden ready for a public opening in September. The support from nmcn has played a huge part in this target launch. Thanks a lot to nmcn and the team. Great effort!”

Volunteering plays a central role in our communities priority of our Positive Impact plan, having formalised our volunteering policy back in May, allowing everyone across our business, at any level, the opportunity to take at least three days off each year to volunteer.

We’re proud to be a company that can support its people to embark on volunteering work within the community or for charitable organisations.
