The time and assistance we receive from our volunteers is vital, and comes in different forms. Our partnership with the Mace Foundation – the charitable arm of international consultancy and construction company Mace – is a superb example of the way in which big companies can provide invaluable help. Seventy Mace employees recently volunteered to redecorate YHA London St Paul’s, giving a total of around 500 hours of their time across five days, transforming the hostel’s bedrooms and communal areas. Mace also engaged with their suppliers Lucas Group and Rees Flooring to donate specialist equipment, paint and carpets. And the end result? A company helping to change young lives for the better – and a hostel that’s never looked so good.
