Give & Gain Day in Wales 2017

Give & Gain Day 2017 

Give & Gain Day is the annual celebration of power and potential of employee volunteering and the positive impact it can have in communities, schools and workplaces across Wales. Through volunteering, companies and employees can develop stronger, longer-lasting community relationships, build their own skills and support local community / charity groups in the work they are doing every day.

2017 was another great year for employee volunteering and businesses rolling up their sleeves to get stuck in to practical and skills based challenges across Wales. Take a look at our 2017 Impact Report to find out more about happened! 

In 2017, Give & Gain Day took place on Friday 12 May, with other volunteering activity taking place throughout the week (8 - 12 May 2017). In Wales, Give & Gain Day 2017 was sponsored by the the Welsh Government and Wales & West Utilities.

"I am very pleased that the Welsh Government is again supporting Give & Gain Day which is a great initiative and provides an extensive range of volunteering opportunities for businesses and employees to get involved and support their local communities. It provides a very rewarding and valuable experience for individuals whose involvement makes a real contribution and does really make a difference." - Ken Skates AM, Cabinet Secretary for Economy & Infrastructure, Welsh Government 

"At Wales & West Utilities our skilled and dedicated colleagues do their very best to keep the communities we serve across Wales and the South West of England safe and warm. Employee volunteering allows us to engage and connect with the communities we serve and means local groups and organisations can take advantage of the skills that our staff have - from raking gardens to running workshops and from painting walls to refurbishing community centres! Give & Gain Day 2017 is a great opportunity to celebrate the benefits businesses can bring to communities through volunteering and we are proud to be involved." - Mark Oliver, Director of Business Services, Wales & West Utilities
