Success at HR Action Day

Staff members from HR teamed up with student volunteers from Harry French Hall to help tidy and spruce up Sawley Marina, as part of their Action Day. 

The group volunteered at Sawley Marina with the Canal & River Trust on the 29 April, where they helped to paint fences and barriers along the lock, clear areas and undertake gardening work.

The day was organised by Action, the volunteering section at the Students’ Union. Action organises weekly projects for students and have also been encouraging staff to get involved.

Rob Allan, Director of HR, said: “The Action Day was a huge success and a fantastic team building event. We arrived at Sawley Marina and everyone ‘got stuck in’ and worked hard throughout the day. This is the 5th year that we have undertaken an ‘Action’ project and it’s great to be able to give something back to the community."

“It was also a wonderful opportunity for everyone to meet some of the Department’s new starters and get to know them a little better out of the office.”
