Convergint colleagues took part in Convergint Social Responsibility Day on the 10th of June 2022. UK colleagues split during the day to work on projects in local areas. On one project colleagues supported Grove Road Pre-School, a Community Pre-School based In Essex.

The team of 9 helped transform their entrance and playground and helped in starting to create an area of remembrance. The entrance and playground were overgrown and “tired”. The team got to work and cleared the pathway from bushes, branches, and weeds. They then trimmed back a very overgrown bush that now makes way for the area of remembrance “buddy corner” and painted it “friends purple”. All of the railway sleepers that boarded the garden got a new coat of paint as did their Gazebo for safe play. The team painted the music corner and moved around some larger furniture into new positions so that the garden now had areas of play for the children.

There was a donated “Garden Kitchen” that unfortunately was not able to be used as it was too rough to touch and causing splinters, so the team went to work sanding the kitchen down and got it ready for use. The chalkboards needed a fix and are now ready for their garden games. Finally, the playground was jet washed and tidied ready for their Sports Day that was taking place on Monday 13th June.
