    Doosan Babcock employees head out into the community

    Engineering specialist Doosan Babcock continued its charitable streak in local communities around the world today to mark the second Doosan Day of Community Service. More than 1,000 Doosan Babcock employees in the UK, Germany, Poland and Hong Kong kept the community spirit alive as they participated in charitable activities ranging from serving food to the elderly to cleaning debris from beaches.

    The activities formed part of the Doosan Day of Community Service, a global initiative from the Korea-based Doosan Group designed to raise awareness of corporate social responsibility among its 43,000 employees worldwide.

    Doosan Babcock employees were given the opportunity to nominate the community organisations they most wanted to help. Among those to benefit from the volunteers’ work were:

    • Camblesforth Community Hall in Selby, UK
    • The Green Team, which provides gardening for elderly residents of Goole in the UK
    • Wylfa Heritage Museum in Wales
    • Residents of Hong Kong, where the team undertook beach cleaning activities
    • Ashton Vale Community Centre, Bristol, UK
    • Craigelea Nursing Home, Renfrew, Scotland
    • Wickham Primary School , Gateshead , UK
    • Christchurch CoE School, West Midlands, UK
    • West Bromwich YMCA , UK
    • The Trussell Trust Food Bank in Paisley, Scotland
    • The Leonard Cheshire Disability Charity, South Normanton, UK
    • Age UK, Cumbria, UK
    • Crawley Open House homeless shelter, UK
    • Olive Tree Cancer Charity in Crawley, UK
    • The Children’s Charity and Relief Society ISKIERKA, Wroclaw, Poland
    • PANDA Family Orphanage, Kozienice, Poland
    • Halle Zoo, Germany

    Today’s event follows on from the success of the inaugural Doosan Day of Community Service in October last year, which saw around 10,000 Doosan staff in 13 countries taking part in a range of charity and community initiatives.

    Simon Hopkins, Director, Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) for Doosan Babcock, said:
    “It has been a great experience to be involved in today’s activities and I am so proud of how my colleagues across the business have embraced this opportunity. The Doosan Day of Community Service will now take place twice a year, allowing us to continue to making meaningful contributions to the communities we operate in. Corporate Social Responsibility remains an integral part of our business, and this initiative is a fantastic way for us to pursue that while reaching those most in need.”
