The Protection and Annuities Finance team were the worthy winners of the Business in the Community (BITC) Volunteering Team of the Year for Surrey. They won the award at the BITC 2012 South East Awards for Excellence on 14 June.
This is the third time in a row that a one of our teams has won recognition for their volunteering at these awards.
The awards recognise and celebrate the commitment, skills and time dedicated by a team of volunteers to make a positive impact in their local community. The team won the award for their volunteering and support of Reigate Valley College.
A one off volunteering day became a fantastic ongoing relationship, and their activities have included an annual ‘World of Work’ day for final year students, a once a term sponsored football match and lunch with the students and teachers. They also helped the first ever student complete a six weeks work experience placement with us.
