Office staff from electricity distributor UK Power Networks got their hands dirty when they supported their local wildlife trust.

A team of five workers, who are part of one of the company’s finance teams, headed to Bramley Bank, Croydon, on Tuesday (July 8) as part of a volunteering programme.

They cleared footpaths of overgrown vegetation and also helped replace some damaged signs at the nature reserve run by the London Wildlife Trust.

Unni Buschmann-Brown was one of the volunteers from UK Power Networks. She said: “The work we carried out was enjoyable, out in the open air when we are usually based in offices.

“We at UK Power Networks like to contribute to the communities we serve and a day like this not only benefits the reserve but helps us develop as a team.”

All the staff gave up their time as part of UK Power Networks’ staff volunteering programme. The initiative allows staff to give two days of paid work time each year to help local charities and community groups with voluntary work.

Peter Beckenham, from the trust, said: “The site is a lovely small reserve made up of woodland and some open areas which we are managing to restore as heathland patches. In the last year we have done lots of work but a group like this will help us complete it.”
