Intermediary team contributions
Being green and helping the environment comes in many forms, and there are lots of ways that you can get involved.
Members of our Intermediary Broker Support Admin Team recently spent time volunteering at Graves Park in Sheffield. The railings around the old boating lake hadn’t been painted in 20 years, and were in desperate need of some attention. As always, the team were more than happy to roll their sleeves up and get stuck in!
After spending over 10 hours painting, the railings were restored and although the team ended up covered from head to toe in green paint, it was considered a job very well done. The park workers could not have been happier - in fact they were so impressed, they have been invited back again!
HSBC UK's Climate Action Network recently worked with several colleagues to focus on a nationwide food drive, #1CAN.
During the month of March, all staff were asked to donate one can of food at one of 10 participating offices to support their vulnerable local communities.
Liz Kitney (Marketing Support Officer, HSBC UK Intermediary Mortgages) helped drive the #1CAN initiative at our Sheffield office. Liz also shared various ways to avoid food waste with staff, along with great eco-friendly plant-based recipes. Liz was key in collaborating with her local Trussell Trust food bank to collect donations, helping those who needed it the most.
