Seven employees used the company’s Donate A Day scheme which gives staff two paid days a year to volunteer in the community, to help Chailey Heritage Foundation near Lewes.

Oliver Maromo who organised the day said: “It was an enjoyable experience to be helping out for a worthy cause. Chailey Heritage Foundation do amazing work supporting young people with complex disabilities to pursue their full potential.”

Jenna Durdle at Chailey Heritage Foundation, said: “Thanks to the team for giving their time to help us with some long overdue tasks! Our hygiene room and outbuildings are looking much smarter thanks to the great work done. It was great to have the chance to tell them a bit more about what we do here at Chailey Heritage Foundation. We hope they’ll continue to support us in the future.”
The power company, which keeps the lights stay on for more than eight million homes and businesses across London, the South East and the East of England, clocked up over 2,000 hours of volunteering by staff in 2018
