This annual Volunteers Week (1-7 June), Anthology is celebrating its dedication to local charities across locations in London in the areas they are building in. Over the last 6 months, Anthology has invested 200 hours and almost £2,000 to good causes in Deptford, Hoxton and Tottenham Hale Village
The Anthology team has taken part in a vast array of volunteering activity in the areas close to its developments, supporting both national campaigns and local charities on the ground. This activity comes as part of Anthology's ongoing commitment to building communities, not just homes, and giving something back to every area that they are currently working in.
Anthology has struck up an ongoing relationship with crisis intervention centre Deptford Reach, nearby to its Deptford Foundry development, offering the team support by regularly volunteering in the centre. To date, the Anthology team has donated 175 man hours to the centre, lending a hand with hosting activities and games for the adults who attend the centre, and helping with the overall facilitating and running of the charity.
Members of the team, along with Hoxton Press’ contractors Wates, have also donated their time to local causes such as the Hoxton food bank, and clearing a local basketball court, which the team helped bring back to a usable standard for Shoreditch Primary School.
Mark Dickinson, Managing Director of Anthology, commented: "Here at Anthology we are committed to building communities and I am proud to have a team of employees who so fiercely make this mantra part of their everyday work. This Volunteers Week we are proud to be celebrating the work we have done over the last six months and look forward to the support we have planned for the rest of 2017.”
