To celebrate PwC’s ‘One firm, one day’ on 20th May, Volunteering Matters will be sending over 200 PwC employee volunteers out to a number of environmental projects to support and preserve biodiversity. 20th May is also ‘Give and Gain’ day, an employee volunteering initiative run by Business in the Community.

As part of a nationwide day of volunteering, PwC staff will go to Brent Lodge Farm, Sutton Trust, Ruskin Park and several other green spaces across London. Staff in Birmingham will go to Ackers Trust adventure playground.

A variety of biodiversity  tasks have been planned for the day, including creating wildlife habitats, working on community gardens, replanting wildflower meadows, creating nature areas in adventure playgrounds and improving public space.

Bev Frain, Head of Employee Volunteering at Volunteering Matters, said: “Volunteering Matters are delighted to support PwC to give so much in just one day. Making a visible difference to public spaces whist improving employees’ knowledge of biodiversity issues is a great way to invest in both staff and local communities.”

David Adair, Head of Community Affairs at PwC, said:  “Improving the environment in our local communities, and educating our people about environmental issues are a key part of our approach to our annual volunteering and fundraising day this year. We’re very much looking forward to getting involved with these biodiversity projects: I’m confident that our staff will enjoy taking part.”
