UK Power Networks is a Distribution Network Operator that owns and maintains electricity cables and lines across London, the South East and East of England making sure the lights stay on for more than 18 million people. As part of the vision to be a Respected Corporate Citizen and an Employer of Choice, UK Power Networks is supporting the communities and charities that are important to their employees.
The employees support the local communities through participating in Donate a Day scheme. This year one of UKPN’s employees (who is a member of Curlew RC) proposed to support Curlew RC, which is a Community Amateur Sports Club that isrun by volunteers and it is eligible for charity days. So UKPN’s Network Planning Team donated a day for Curlew RC and Royal Docks Adventure. They helped to do a variety of tasks such as rubbish clearance of the Docks area, gardening and weeding and boat restoration. Words by Christina Tsechelidou
