Since 2017, Clark Contracts has offered all employees the opportunity to spend one paid working day per year volunteering for a charity of their choice. This initiative means that almost 2,000 hours per year, can be spent supporting charities across Scotland.


In recent months, employees from across the company have used this scheme to support a number of charities.


Several employees from the company’s Finance, Business Development and Quantity Surveying departments supported ACCORD Hospice, Refuweegee, Prince and Princess of Wales Hospice, Fresh Start Scotland and Alzheimer Scotland, by helping to sort through donations, assist within their shops and prepare for upcoming fundraising events.


Employees from the main contractor’s HR, Recruitment and Administration departments decorated the Royal Hospital for Children for Easter, helping patients and families to enjoy easter whilst in hospital. Glasgow Children's Hospital Charity’s Head of Trusts and Volunteering said: “The team were all really hard working, good spirited and happy to help out with the extra areas on the day. They listened to our instruction and were so aware of the hospital surrounding and ensured NHS staff, hospital families and our young patients were priority when moving around the hospital.”


Furthermore, Design Managers, Contracts Managers, Site Managers and directly employed tradespeople from across the main contractors Construction, Fit Out and Small Works divisions carried out gardening, the restoration of garden furniture and the internal painting of rooms to help improve facilities for Hansel, Erskine, and Fife Employment Access Trust.


Gordon Cunningham, Managing Director of Clark Contracts, said, “This initiative was introduced following a suggestion by our company ‘Steering Group’, and it is brilliant to see so many employees using the benefit to provide valuable support to a wide range of charities, who all do amazing work within their communities and across the country. We hope this continues as the year goes on, with charities continuing to benefit from our employee’s time.”
