On Tuesday 21st October, 6 teams of Cedenco staff mobilised to support more than a dozen community projects in a “Mucking In” day. Teams chose their own community projects which included cleaning, gardening, painting, building and planting work in various children’s and older folks communities as well as environmental projects. Cedenco provided the teams with funds to spend on each project but the teams were truly blown away by the support they received from local companies with donations of timber, paint, nails, plants, seeds, trucks, soil, machinery, food and helpers, even singers! The level of support was so great that most teams were able to donate at least 90% of Cedenco project funds to local charities, some teams even managing to give their lunch money away as well to worthy causes.
