Yell donate HR kit to local charities
November 07, 2011
Reading based print and digital services company Yell has donated a whopping £20,000 worth of human resources materials to local charities.
The haul included team building games, training manuals, stress balls, a handheld camcorder and a DVD player which were all brokered by Connect Reading to the local voluntary sector.
The lucky charities to have benefitted from the donation were Berkshire County Blind Society, CBEBP and Berkshire Community Foundation who will be using the resources for their own charities as well as creating a library of the training manuals for use by other charities and community organisations from the local area.
Alice Sonaike from Connect Reading said: “This has to be the most valuable one-off donation that we have had from a member. At a time when local charities are really struggling in the current climate to have this source of learning equipment and items available for them is just fantastic.”
Kimberley Watts-Fitzsimmons, Corporate Responsibility Manager for Yell in the UK, said: “We are very pleased that our used HR materials will be going to local charities in need. As a responsible company we always try to ensure that we recycle us much as possible and it’s great that Connect Reading can facilitate this.”
