Congratulations to Pfizer UK, based in Tadworth, on being announced as “Winner of the Social Value Recognition Awards 2018” at the recent #WeAreSurrey event.
Pfizer UK were nominated by Voluntary Action Reigate & Banstead for their participation in a skills-based volunteering pilot. Staff from Pfizer have been using their volunteer days and their skills to help local charities. Age Concern Merstham Redhill and Reigate received assistance to create a new website, including training in how to update and maintain it. Pfizer has also worked with a group of five local charities, including VARB, to create a joint marketing campaign for Christmas donations. See here for further details.
By using their particular skills and professional experience to assist charities, Pfizer have added significant value; providing expertise that the charities would not normally have access to.
If you are a local employer and would like to find out more about skills based volunteering contact firstname.lastname@example.org for details of current opportunities and future information events.
