The Australian team provide helping hands at The Wayside Chapel
Friday, 23 June 2017
Australia is a large country with the Isle team strategically spread out within it. Yesterday the team met up for a rare team building day. In fact, it was the first time in years that everyone was in the same place.
Tim, MD of the team said,
“We did something a bit different. The Wayside Chapel looks after the most marginalised members of our community in Kings Cross. They offer group volunteering days where teams up to 10 people come and get involved with the community.
This is how the day is planned:
9:30am – Welcome and introduction to Wayside services 11am – Informational walking tour through Kings Cross and Woolloomooloo with first hand perspectives and stories of life on the street
11.45am – Prepare a two-course meal in Wayside’s commercial kitchen
1pm – Serve and enjoy lunch in the company of Wayside visitors
2pm - Lunch pack down and clean up
2.30pm – Team debrief
3pm - Leave Wayside
It was a great day and a real eye opener for some of the team. Everyone worked really well together and it was much appreciated by the 60 or so people that turned up for lunch.”
