Apprentices help community tidy up
Ten apprentices from Ongo and British Steel will be taking part in a big community tidy up.
The event will take place on Tuesday 8 November 2016 in the Hinman Walk area of Scunthorpe, where the apprentices will be working with our caretakers to clean up the area and carry out gardening work.
Andy Orrey, our Chief Executive, said: “Being able to work in partnership with British Steel to improve one of our areas is a great way to demonstrate how both companies are committed to improving our local community.
“We hold lots of events like this and will be encouraging our tenants to also get involved to help tidy up the area in which they live.
“For our own apprentices, and those from British Steel, this event will be a great opportunity to get out in the community, meet some of our residents and really help make a difference.”
Rebecca Slater, Community Liaison Manager at British Steel, said: “We are really proud that our apprentices are getting out in our community doing some positive work like this volunteer project. We look forward to more opportunities to do some great community work with Ongo.”
We hope to continue this partnership working with British Steel, with more apprentice community days planned in the future.
