Total Hire get involved with local community event!
Total Hire & Sales are delighted to have been asked to be involved in this year’s Graduate Global Challenge for Rolls-Royce. For a number of years, Rolls-Royce has worked with its new intake of graduate trainees to complete a community-based challenge during their first week with the Company. For Rolls-Royce, the project aims to give this year’s cohort of approximately 250 graduate trainees from across the globe the opportunity to get to know one another and develop their interpersonal and team working skills, whilst also making a valuable contribution in the local community.
This year’s project was managed by Derby-based community enterprise RedWelly. RedWelly works in partnership with social landlords and businesses to organise garden ‘makeovers’ that transform outdoor areas for the benefit of the community. Total Hire have a long standing working relationship with RedWelly and on this occasion was happy to provide a selection of power tools, spades, wheelbarrows and hand tools to assist the graduates with the task they had to undertake.
Carl Tidey, Director & General Manager attended the event at Drum Hill Scouts Camp in Little Eaton on Tuesday 13th September where Rolls-Royce newest employees were given the challenge to improve the grounds. ”We are proud to be part of this worthwhile community based initiative with Rolls-Royce and RedWelly. It’s pleasing to know that the work that is being carried out will be enjoyed by the young generation for years to come.”
Drum Hill is a nationally recognised Scout County campsite, situated 6 miles north of Derby. It hosts between 8000-9000 young people each year taking part in a camping or indoor residential experience as well as thousands more making day or evening visits. As well as Scouts and Guides it is used by many other youth groups and organisations including Army Cadets, Air Training Cadets, Youth Clubs, Church Groups, community groups and Schools.
At the end of the day the teams had completed a mountain bike course, building a wheelchair viewing platform, replacing and creating fencing and creating a memorial area.
