Denplan Team ChallengeEmployer Supported Volunteering

Could you and your work colleagues take on a team challenge? The Volunteer Centre can turn an ‘away day’ into a meaningful experience that enables team building to take place whilst acquiring a ‘feel good factor’ from helping those in need. Bespoke days can be arranged. For more information contact David Bradshaw on dbradshaw@waca.org.uk
