As part of their annual activity day the Woking staff of Q8Aviation took time off from their normal duties to help a local Charity. The Lighthouse Project is a charitable project which supports the wellbeing of the disadvantaged within the local Woking community. This support includes providing food donations and meals for those in need, supplying clothes, toys and equipment for younger children, and helping the homeless and recovering addicts to integrate them back into society.
The charity is centred in an extended building in Woking town centre covering 3 floors and including a large basement. The building is currently undergoing refurbishment and there was a clear need to assist on this whilst also progressing with the additional tasks of clearing the building of unwanted materials and organising the clothes and materials donated by the public and local business.
Q8Aviation visited the Lighthouse on the 20th of September and the 34 staff were divided into 6 teams, each responsible for a different task. The tasks were as follows:
Social Committee member Julian Amesbury says “Supporting local communities is an important part of Q8’s social responsibility and we are delighted to help the Lighthouse Project, which makes a vital contribution to helping vulnerable people in our local area. It was a great pleasure to see everyone in our team working together for such an important cause.”
