Community Action

Corporate Social Resonsbility is important to us as a company. On Friday we spent our team away day at our chosen charity for this year: Endeavour. Endeavour helps to build new futures for disadvantaged young people. Their focus is those who are at risk of being excluded from education, who don’t have a mainstream education place; those at risk of offending, or newly arrived to the country and for young people with learning difficulties. The team at Endeavour provide a space, as well as support for personal development, education and social action.

We spent time with the team at Endeavour, learning more about their work and how they go about engaging young people. The team-building activities warmed us up, before we put our practical skills to good use on site, re-generating their garden and building canoe racks.   

It was good to bring the Sheffield Sustainable Kitchens team together and put our community spirit into action!
