Boxxe team up with York Mind for volunteering and the Dragon Boat Race

We have teamed up with Boxxe to forge a new corporate partnership and their first activity was a huge sucess!

As we planned the re-opening of our Highcliffe House office our attentions turned to our patio area which had unfortunately be neglected over lockdown. Boxxe offered their support and planned a day to come and make over the area for us! Armed with some glorious plants, gloves, tools and compost the team of 6, fantastic volunteers, spent a day in the sun pulling weeds, digging up old pots of soil and cleaning out the water feature!

Wow just look at the results...

Our Patio area in now clean and tidy and full of pretty, flowering plants and a little water feature to add to the calming atmosphere! What a fab place for staff and clients to spend a quite moment. Thank you so much to the whole Boxxe team! We look forward to our next project.,

We spoke with thier team to find out more about why they wanted to get involved and support York Mind:

‘At boxxe we are committed to ensuring that we are a force for personal, collective and environmental good. As an organisation we are defined by making technology human and a core part of our mission is to give back to the wider community of which we are part of. This is such an integral part of who we are that we recently committed 5% of our time to creating positive impact, empowering our boxxe community to contribute to the causes they are passionate about.

Although the main purpose of our boxxe Community is to create sustainable communities it has been an excellent outlet for teams to get together and create shared experiences. After a particularly challenging year wellbeing is paramount and our volunteer programme empowers everyone in the boxxe community to be generous with their time and reap the benefits acts of kindness.

Our colleague Mike Clark set up our Mental Health First Aiders programme to ensure we had a supportive network at boxxe and has been a passionate advocate for mental health support and inclusion. We want to ensure that everyone has the access to the support they deserve and it has been great to interact with York Mind to see how we can support the incredible work they do. Alongside our green fingered Boxxe community gardeners we will be joining York’s Dragon Boat Race and hopefully rowing our way to glory in support of the charity.”

Boxxe have also signed up to race a boat in the famous Rotary Dragon Boat event 2021! Here is their page
