Janet Duggan from Community First says â€œit is fantastic to see local businesses supporting Give & Gain Day and Pfizer is a perfect example of how the business sector can work alongside community projects to make a difference to the local community. We also saw a group of volunteers from The V Team, a supported volunteering group, taking part in the volunteering day on Hayling Island, showing how all sections of the community can work together. It has been a busy week for Community Firstâ€™s Volunteer Service with Laleham Health & Beauty doing a makeover of one of Alton Community Centreâ€™s rooms. In addition to being involved with a networking event hosted by Waitrose Winchester looking at how the business sector can work more closely with the local communityâ€.
