Company – Infinis

Charity – The Canal & River Trust

Twelve employees from the UK’s leading generator of renewable power, Infinis, left their mark on the Welsh valleys by volunteering as a team to help a local charity.

The Canal & River Trust is slowly restoring the Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal to former glories. The team worked across the stunning site by painting lock gates, repairing stone bridges, laying wooden flooring and removing large overgrown trees to improve public access.

“It’s a long term project,” said Richard Dommett, volunteer manager from the charity. “As a small charity mainly helped by part time local volunteers, we’re delighted Infinis chose to help us for a day.”

“It’s been brilliant getting away from the office and the laptop to help on a community project,” said Rob Matthews, business development manager at Infinis.  “Getting together with the guys for a day has been great as we often work in isolation. I’ve enjoyed it so much that I’ve offered to come back again in my own time to help out more.”

Brad Wilson, a field technician at Infinis, was involved with stonework and helped to repair a bridge over the water. He said: “I’m a former bricklayer and it’s been good to use my skills to help for the day. What a stunning project to be involved with, and days like this are great for team morale.”

“The tasks carried out by Infinis staff today has really helped us move forward,” said Richard Dommett. “It’s been a pleasure to be involved with Business Volunteers and Infinis employees.  We’d welcome you all back to the site anytime.”
