It was a busy couple of months in the world of Corporate Volunteering for Unum employees. In October and November, several members of Unum’s staff undertook volunteering projects in the county of Carlow. Carlow Volunteer Centre were delighted to be to connect them with local organisations. The Unum volunteers undertook projects in Carlow Educate Together National School, in Bethany House and in St. John’s Caring Centre in Hacketstown. Staff here were delighted to see the volunteers arrive and were very appreciative that Unum generously supplied all paints and materials.

Feedback from both the organisations and the volunteers themselves was extremely positive. Lynn Ellingworth, who volunteered in St. John’s Caring Centre, enthused how brilliant the experience was, and how doing something to help the community made them all feel “10feet tall”.
