We have been really buoyed at The Conservation Volunteers with all the positive conversations we continue to have with our corporate partners around how we can get back to working together after COVID-19.
In 2019 we had a record-breaking year with over 7,000 employees from our corporate partners volunteer with TCV, supporting hundreds of community projects across the UK. We know from feedback (98% of employees we surveyed would recommend a day with TCV to a colleague) just how much they enjoy making a difference in local communities.
Our TCV Rep for the day was fantastic, knowledgeable, helpful, enthusiastic, and provided absolutely anything you could need. I really enjoyed my day with TCV and can’t wait to do it again, it was hard work but great fun and really rewarding.Employee volunteer
Of the 7,000 employee volunteers we worked with last year, an incredible 5,200 volunteers were from the NatWest Group working on 71 sites across England, Scotland, and Northern Ireland.
We launched our new partnership with Sky UK. The amazing fundraising teams from Wates Group ran, paddled, cycled, walked, and baked throughout the year to raise a staggering £100K to support our TCV projects and volunteers.
Rest assured, we are planning for when the restrictions ease and we can once again welcome everyone back, your energy, passion and commitment will be needed more than ever to support our community green spaces as we transition post COVID-19.
