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 nina@varb.org.uk for details of current opportunities and future information events.
