We found out about the opportunity to volunteer at the Bankside Open Spaces Trust Waterloo Millennium Green through Benefacto, which is partnered with AECOM. We wanted to use our CSR days and improve the green areas of London for the community.
We met with other volunteers and worked as a team to clear an area ready for it to be landscaped. It was great to do something completely different to our day to day activities and we even learnt some new skills, such as how to use gardening tools and how to prune rose bushes. We enjoyed our day outdoors and felt it was a worthwhile activity which we would highly recommend to others!
