A number of Imperial Tobacco’s Ukraine-based employees have spent a weekend sprucing up a park in the capital Kiev as part of an ongoing community investment partnership.
Around 30 Imperial people from different functions came together for the urban rejuvenation project in the Golosiivsky district, near to Imperial’s offices on the outskirts of the city.
Imperial paid for new lighting, benches and a decorative floating water fountain to be installed, and the volunteers helped by clearing away rubbish and planting flower beds.
Earlier this year Imperial signed a partnership agreement with the local authority to support community projects in this rundown area of the Ukrainian capital.
“We employee around 800 people inKievand this district is very close to our office and the factory,” said Eugene Walsh, general managerUkraine.
“As a responsible business we are happy to support improvement projects such as this which help us to give something back to the local community.”
