More than 140 of Imperial Tobacco’s German employees gave up their time recently to take part in a community volunteer day. The employees, based in Hamburg, joined one of eight local projects for the Reemtsma Help Day.
Projects included helping out at animal rescue centers, taking part in tandem bike rides with blind people, creating wildlife havens, building a forest garden, clearing a river and helping the homeless.
“Our first volunteer day last year proved such a success that we wanted to do it again,” said Media Relations Manager Svea Milena Schröder, who coordinated the events.
“There was so much demand last time that we had more volunteers than places, so we increased the number of opportunities to get involved this time around.
“By showing our commitment to good causes in this way, we give back to our community, gain new perspectives and also get to know our colleagues better across all functions.”
