A group of 18 volunteers from Network Rail are feeling inspired after spending the day helping a local community group improve their headquarters.

Employees from Network Rail took part in an employee volunteering programme last week, which enables them to spend five days a year helping the community.

Community group Men in Sheds was the lucky recipients of the DIY SOS style help offered as part of the Community Action Development Services, Corporate Citizenship Programme.

Just one day made a huge difference to Men in Sheds, set up by men for men – in the typical ‘shed at the bottom of the garden’ setting.

Members come together to share skills and tools to work on projects

Philippa Callcut, Business Architect at Network Rail, said: “This has been a fantastic example of how we are able to support local communities.

“Our employees have a great range of skills and it has been inspiring to hear how our volunteering has made such a difference.

“We want to thank Community Action for partnering with us to make this happen.”
