Fit For Purpose - The Directory Group

Fit for purpose

A hands-on team of volunteers from Amey put their skills to good use to help the 3rd Hayling Scout Group.

The team of seven spent a day working at the Scout group’s headquarters in Hayling Island preparing and painting the walls and woodwork, to provide a better environment for the 230 young people who use the building every week.

Ian Hawke from the 3rd Hayling Scout Group said: “We were delighted with Amey’s support. Their kind gesture has made a real difference to the facilities and will ensure we continue to have a headquarters which is fit for purpose.”

The day was suggested by Amey employee Libby Cornwell, a volunteer with Shark Scout Troop.

Amey provides highways and winter maintenance services on behalf of Hampshire County Council, and gives each employee the option to spend a day volunteering with local charitable organisations.

Richard Palmer, a supervisor for Amey and part of the team, said: “We had a fantastic day supporting the Scout group. Hopefully our efforts will mean that the children can continue to make full use of the facilities.”
