Team Building Day
Employees from 3mobile volunteered 1 day out of their job to support a local Charity 'The Ways & Means Trust' which helps adults with physical disabilities and mental health isuues, in Rotherfield Peppard, just outside Caversham on 4th May 2016.
As a team, this was our 2nd volunteering day with this local Charity. Working together as a team we managed to complete a number of projects that needed doing. We built a shed, secured fences to protect the chickens, re-potted plants, helped tidy up the site (this included burning rubbish on a bonfire!), general office admin and most importantly we had fun - while eating lots of homemade cakes provided by the Charity.
We finished the day by having a BBQ on site. This was an opportunity for us to Make a Difference by giving our time. As well as applying and learning new skills in support of a worthwhile local Charity, we had fun as a team, and got to know each other a bit more. Thank you!
'We have used the services of The Ways & Means Trust for a few years now and I have to say the quality of work has always been second to none. The customer service received from all members of staff has been excellent, especially from Martin who manages to maintain a very high standard of work no matter what we throw at him.'
Robert - Orient Solutions
'Reliable - that's the first word I think of when dealing with Ways & Means. With the kind of work you do, it would be easy to let quality slip - but that never happens. We have been working with you for over 10 years now and the work is always accurate and completed on time - with nothing too much trouble.'

'It is wonderful that I am able to put in writing how grateful I am for the support you have given me whilst working at Ways & Means in Caversham.
I am an employment advisor for Shaw Trust; because of the mobility of my position in the community I work from different offices. My experience with Ways & Means is one of total trust, along with an atmosphere that encourages a flow of positive activity. I mentioned before that 'home like feeling' when one arrives at your company. This encourages easier communication for all.
Thank you for making the transition period for clients over to Shaw Trust so much easier and I really look forward to working with you and your colleagues'
Patricia Denhert - Shaw Trust - Employment Adviser
" I am sorry to tell you that T has to leave Unit 2 because he now has a job. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your help and support, you have been so helpful and caring and it's always been a pleasure to talk to you and your team. T has come home and been very keen to cook for us the meals he has cooked with you. In his time with you T has been able to hone his catering skills which in turn has helped him get his job at Flint House. So a great big thank you!
