Saint-Gobain PAM have been recently actively involved in numerous local projects and community action groups within the Erewash Area – did you know that recent donations from their Benevolent and Community Fund have contributed towards the restoration of the Bells of St. Mary’s, the refurbishment of the Cantelupe Centre and rain jackets for the Under 10’s of Stanton Ilkeston FC as well as donations to St John Houghton and Field House Schools.
These are just a few of the ways Saint-Gobain PAM have been helping the local Ilkeston community.
As a local employer they offer a “Give & Gain” scheme to all their employees, whereby they are given 2 days paid a year to undertake volunteering work within a local group or charity. Recently a group of ten volunteers spent a morning at Pioneer Meadows Nature Reserve in Kirk Hallam, collecting litter and making the Nature Reserve a nicer and safer place to visit.
Another employee contributed to a 9 week training course, undertaken one morning per week for 2 hours. The course run by Derbyshire County Council provided training on communication, education, play and Family Survival. This was beneficial as the employee is a parent of a child with autism. After the successful course, the employee has become actively involved in the ‘Awareness for Autism UK’ Charity.
At this year’s Charity Football match at Notts County‘s Meadow Lane Ground, with numerous soap stars, ex-pro’s and celebrities playing, and as part of their fundraising, Saint-Gobain PAM made their contribution by sponsoring the Man of The Match awards.
