Wetherspoon’s head of corporate social responsibility (CSR), Caroline Walters, joined 11 members of staff from pubs in Newcastle to take part in the UK’s largest employee volunteering event.

The event, ‘Give and Gain Day’, formed part of National Volunteering Week.

Caroline and her colleagues joined other volunteers to decorate two large rooms of a community centre in the city.

She said: “Wetherspoon takes CSR very seriously indeed, with the ‘Give and Gain Day’ being the perfect platform for us to put something back into the community.

“All 12 of us who took part in decorating the community centre thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and are delighted that our volunteer work will benefit others.”
