CNG volunteer over 200 hours for Henshaws!

Energy supplier CNG have clocked up over a whopping 200 hours volunteering for Henshaws!

Employees from the Harrogate-based firm CNG have been working hard to clear the trees, prepare the ground and plant new areas in the sensory garden at our Arts & Crafts Centre in Knaresborough.

The volunteering effort will make a huge difference for our centre, which provides a unique setting for disabled people in the local area, running a range of creative and employability workshops to promote life skills and social skills, supporting them to become more independent in their everyday lives. Many of the disabled people who come to the Arts & Crafts Centre benefit from a sense of community, friendship, wellbeing and a chance to express their creativity. The garden provides an accessible, safe space for both visitors and Art Makers to explore.

"We're thrilled to have reached the 200 hour milestone with Henshaws. Not only has it been our pleasure to support them and the incredible work they do, but we value the opportunity to step out of the office and bring our team together for a wonderful cause. We're already working out how we can help meet another volunteering milestone and hope this is just the beginning!"

Jacqui Hall, MD of CNG
