The second quarter has been a busy one for the team at Waypoint who have dedicated their efforts to the company’s Corporate Social Responsibility initiatives.
The team had opportunity to participate in a number of volunteering schemes:
Strong Women Trek
Agie Murach-Stepnowska, Melanie Fern and Tatiana Babul represented the ladies at Waypoint by joining over 400 empowered women to take part in the 22k Strong Women Trek in Epping Forest.
Organised by The Stylist Group the inaugural 22K Strong Women Trek sponsored by Yakult Europe B.V. raised money for their charity partner CARE International UK.
CARE International UK is one of the world’s leading global aid organisations, supporting over a thousand community-based development and humanitarian aid projects around the world including assistance for the crisis of displaced women and children of Ukraine.
The funds raised by the team at Waypoint were donated in aid of the women and children fleeing the war in Ukraine.
“It was a day well spent out in the open air with likeminded women walking together in the sunshine for less fortunate women fleeing the war in Ukraine. Although my legs were aching, I felt happy that I reached the finish line with Mel and Tatiana by my side…the strong women of Waypoint!” Agie Murach-Stepnowska – Operations Manager.
The hottest day of the year in June saw the group’s Patrick Smith, Hayley Bondi, Chris Wilton, Jonny Waller, and Melanie Fern take part in Be Enriched’s Community Kitchen scheme in Tooting.
Be Enriched is a food charity based in South London which seeks to eliminate food waste and serves the community members of Tooting with three-course nutritious meals supplied by the food surplus.
“We have endeavoured to build our business on a foundation of integrity and ethical conduct. Our company’s culture believes we have a responsibility towards the communities in which we operate, and towards the health and sustainability of the planet we all share. We are pleased to see members of the team participate in charitable efforts and share our values at Waypoint” Nick Gregory – Head of ESG
