Golden Moments Awards 2021

Partners Group wins volunteering award


Employee-volunteering charity York Cares has awarded our team with a Golden Moments award for being the first company to take part in a Team Challenge after lockdown.

The award was announced at a virtual event to celebrate the huge difference that employee-volunteers have made in the city over the past year.  

Partners director Monica Green was interviewed by Elly Fiorentini from BBC Radio York about the team challenge which took place last August at Greenfields School and Community Garden on Haxby Road, York, where the team pruned fruit bushes, raked grass and picked up litter. 

Monica said: “The team challenge gave us the chance to bring the team together in a COVID-safe way whilst also helping the local community.  We’ve supported York Cares since it was formed in 2006 and are always inspired by their work.  They make it so easy for employers to enable their staff to volunteer their time and skills, and help individuals and communities in most need. It was wonderful to receive a Golden Moments award.” 

There were 18 Golden Moments awards in total given to volunteers from Nestlé, boxxe, Aviva, York St. John University, Benenden Health, Joseph Rowntree Foundation (JRF), Joseph Rowntree Housing Trust, Joanne Thompson (FCCA), University of York, and City of York Council.

A highlight of the event was the screening of a film featuring York Cares’ Big Community Challenge at Rowntree Park, which we were also involved in. You can watch it here.
