23 Allstate NI employees took part in activities across the province for worthy causes as part of National Give & Gain Day on Friday 17th April 2013. The event, which is organised by Business in the Community, allows volunteers to donate their time to the communities they live or work in by helping out at various locations. This is a national event and over 200 volunteers were out and about across Northern Ireland with over 12,000 volunteers out across the UK. Allstate NI employees could be found at Mount Stewart in County Down, The Wave Trauma Centre in Belfast, Assisi Animal Sanctuary in Conlig, Barn Court Children's Home in Carrickfergus, St Mary's School in Belfast and Beacon Wellbeing in L'Derry. Activities varied in everything from dog walking to painting and gardening, providing something for everyone.
As part of its Corporate Responsibility Strategy, Allstate NI donates half their employees' time whilst the individuals volunteer the remaining hours themselves, learning new skills and finding out about the great work that goes unnoticed across the country on a daily basis. It also gives employees the chance to give something back and to have a little fun in doing so building new friendships and learning new skills.
