Teamwork Makes the Dream Work! WAW Volunteer Day at The Prince of Wales Hospice

Teamwork really did make the dream work as an army of We Are Wakefield members volunteered for the day at The Prince of Wales Hospice in Pontefract.

Sanding, painting, clearing, building, sweeping, jet-washing, counting the stock – they got through a mountain of jobs to get the hospice gardens ready for their Summer Fair which takes place on Sunday 2 July.

Representatives from 14 member businesses joined forces for a day of real collaboration.  Lots of work got done, everyone had a great day.  New friendships were formed as always during a We Are Wakefield event and did anyone even realise they were networking?!

The weather was kind and everyone went home tired and dirty but with a real sense of achievement and pride!

The photo’s say it all – if Carlsberg did team work they’d re-brand as WAW!!
