Volunteer profile

Volunteers from Aviva joined staff and residents at one of The Benjamin Foundation's services in King's Lynn for a day long makeover event. Decorating and gardening jobs were tackled during the day as 20 pairs of hands set to work at The Hub on the Fairstead estate.

Manager of The Hub Ian Jansens said "The Aviva volunteers have made a real difference and we've achieved so much in a day. The residents have already been making their own improvements but today we've made so much more progress. The young people we support here have had a tough start to their lives and so any support from local companies is always welcomed".

Volunteer Carol Hall added "We enjoyed the day out of the office knowing we were helping The Benjamin Foundation's work with young adults in King's Lynn".

A big thank you to Jewsons of Kings Lynn for donating the wood and also to Fairstead Partnership for the funds to purchase gardening equipment, seeds etc which will enable the young residents to grown their own vegetables.
