JP Corry's 'Saintly' volunteers help with local community projects

17 March 2017

Giving back to the community is part of our culture, and our employees demonstrated their support to local community organisations through participation in Business in the Community’s ‘Be A Saint’ day 2017.

Despite the tough conditions, a number of JP Corry employees braved the cold weather and participated in a range of practical volunteering challenges across Northern Ireland. Tasks included maintaining local parks, tree planting and weeding. 

Leigh Bell-Roberts, Credit Controller and Jonny Finlay, Springfield Road Telesales, spent the day at the Mens Shed in Antrim through Action Mental Health. The team contibuted to a number of tasks resulting in a new bed area being raised. The guys also wedded the area and dismantled several pallets for reclaimed wood. Great work - well done!

Andrew Martin, Management Accountant and Tommy Gordon, Springfield Road Sales Representative, got their hands dirty on the Minnowburn National Trust Project. The guys spent the day maintaining the terrace hill and rose garden, and managed to plant over 200 trees. Fantastic work!

Neil Glover, Bangor Sales Representative got to work on Mount Stewart and removed various invasive plant species in the area. Great work Neil!
