Last Wednesday saw me once again with sand­wiches, paint brushes and 9 versatile and very capable managers from Oakam. This was our latest corporate social respons­ib­ility event with it’s typical and practical Collage win-win working twist.

By this I mean the event was a real grass roots practical community project with genuine outcomes which were mutually bene­fi­cial to the three parties involved.

The Croydon African Carribean Family Organisation (CACFO) were great hosts and made us all feel very welcome and provided tea and coffee ‘on-tap’ throughout the day. We were also had the bonus of an impromptu present­a­tion from the founder Mrs Gee Bernard. CAFCO were able to get the front of their building re-painted in time for their 20 years cel­eb­ra­tion which is due later this month…details to be added shortly.

Oakham: This was the second event we had facil­it­ated for the Company and a very cost effective and original team building event was organised as part of their Aspire programme for their managers. As well as being a team building exercise, they were able to raise further their company profile locally and help their local community in a practical way: they painted a local facility and by hiring Collage Network to organise the event this enables the social enter­prise to become sus­tain­able and to continue its work helping people and companies to collaborate.
