Allstate NI Out In Force for Environment Day 2013

17 Allstate NI volunteers from across all 3 offices joined a 140 volunteer strong army of 'eco-warriors' on Friday 20 September as part of Business in the Community's Environment 'action' Day to tackle projects of an environmental nature.

Each volunteer was supported by their employer to get involved with a project which would help conserve our environment and heritage in Northern Ireland. As part of its Corporate Social Responsibility programme Allstate NI provides half the volunteer time donated by employees back allowing employees to enjoy days out to help their local community.

Employees from our Belfast offices could be found at Lisnabreeny—a National Trust forestland site nestled in the Castlereagh hills with beautiful views and waterfalls. Volunteers got stuck in with shrub clearance and general maintenance of the site to improve growth of plants and trees and clean up the area for visitors to enjoy. Employees from Strabane and Northland offices could be found at Beacon Wellbeing—a Supportive Housing Facility for those struggling with mental health. Here volunteers could be found digging out hedgerows and clearing out overgrown areas in a bid to preserve the gardens of the site to provide a peaceful clean area for tenants to enjoy.

Hilary Hanberry, Business in the Community's Volunteering Manager, explains:

"Environment Day gives employees a unique opportunity to make a difference to the communities in which they live and work. Working in teams, volunteers contributed their skills, talent and experience to a 'green' cause and of course had a bit of fun along the way."

Allstate NI are thrilled to have been part of a day that gives back to the community, builds employee relationships and helps the environment—a big thank you to everyone that took part!

"It was great to get out of the office for the day and take part in the World Environment Day project at the Rosses. It was great being able to make a difference for the residents of the housing scheme, and to meet up with old friends from previous projects." Emmet, Northland employee.
