Park Plaza County Hall, a major Lambeth employer approached Engage Lambeth to help them find a practical community project for a team of motivated volunteers to get involved with. Engage Lambeth run Team Challenge events that can lead to more sustainable, on-going partnerships between businesses and community organisations.

Friends of Archbishop’s Park look after a small open space that is right on the doorstep of Park Plaza County Hall. This park is an incredibly valuable resource for the local community and is one of Lambeth’s 11 Green Flag Award-winning parks. The Friends of Group were incredibly keen to develop a partnership with Park Plaza, and to get some extra support with key tasks in preparation for the summer.

The volunteer team worked hard all day gardening and planting to improve the environment of Archbishop’s Park. It was a great opportunity for them to give back their local park and to work together as a team to make a difference.

As a local business we fully appreciate all our green spaces and were delighted to give something back to the wonderful community of Lambeth. Engage Lambeth were a fantastic support in finding us a suitable volunteer opportunity. Thanks for your help and hard work!
