Brenntag employees are entitled to a volunteering day with a registered charity of their choice. Lynn Unwin, Office Manager, chose to spend the day with Sue Ryder Wheatfields Hospice.
Lynn: "Sue Ryder are a well renowned and respected hospice providing care for ill patients suffering from cancer, heart and lung diseases. I support this charity because the staff looked and cared for my best friend, and my father-in-law in his end of life care. They also provided great bereavement support for my mother-in-law.
The volunteer day was fantastic - it was an eye opener as to what the staff and volunteers do to achieve their own goals, and to raise funds to continue to employ and pay for necessary services and support to families that have been affected by cancer.
Volunteering an extra pair of hands for the day provided very much needed help to other volunteers in need of further assistance. It was very rewarding and it has given me inspiration to support the charity further in the future."
