ThriveWorking together in Trafford

Thrive Trafford ‘Week of Action’ – Are You Up For The Challenge?

On the week commencing the 6th October Thrive Trafford are leading a week long campaign of community improvement projects to demonstrate the fantastic impact local businesses can make to an area. We are inviting local business volunteers to leave the office for a day and get stuck into projects to transform local communities.

We have lined up some great community improvement projects for local businesses to take part in. We are hosting a different project each day - ranging from painting to gardening. Over the week we are looking for 100 volunteers from the business community to get their hands dirty on a conservation project - come along and learn new skills, meet new people and make a difference!

What’s in it for you?

It’s a win win situation, the experience builds skills and motivates employees.
Volunteers can come along for the whole day or half a day. All Health and Safety/ Risk Assessment is included.

You can sign up to a project by registering on our eventbrite page click here.
