Today we opened up our meeting room and welcomed Concordia International Volunteers.
The Concordia staff and volunteers were able to do presentations and catch up on each others work and also look towards their future based on their current strategies. Callender Creates were also on hand to act as consultants for future ecommerce work planned for the Concordia web site.
Fiona Taylor, Manager, said “we appreciate that the team at Callender Creates are very busy, so we value the time and the opportunity to use the meeting room for our ‘away day’ meeting’.
Concordia offers more than 1600 international volunteer projects every year, in the UK and overseas.
We are glad we assist with valuable charities like this, furthermore, this isn’t our only work with Charities.
Jim Callender is also of to Nepal at the end of August to lead 8 British Volunteers in Nepal, on behalf of BTCV.
The project has meant to run the last 3 years, but with terrorist activity leading to low bookings, Jim can finally head off and do some worthwhile international conservation work.
The work itself is very practical attracting all ages and ability of volunteers. Partnership with a local host will enable us to take on habitat management tasks, such as reforrestation, tree planting and possibly community work such as teaching at local Nepalese schools.
Watch this space for post-trip photos, and warm wishes to all involved.
