Our new enterprise project, the Pickles Project helps Bangladeshi and Pakistani people who are long term unemployed and looking to set up their own business and you can help!
One of the first weeks of their learning involves going on a group picking day to some local orchards in need of volunteers to help with the upkeep of it and clearing of the beautiful space! A few weeks ago volunteers from Sainsburys and Santander came with our trainees to Highbury orchards and guinea gardens orchards to pick fruit and vegetables!
With the fruit and vegetables picked the trainees had a session with Rosie Ginday MBE, our founder and CEO making pickles with them! These pickles will become the product that they use to learn how to market, sell and network!
It was an amazing day out of the office and we all really felt as if we were making a difference in the orchards, helping to clear space for new plantings and generally tidying up, whilst at the same time helping the trainees move forward in the business world!
Miss Macaroon has a new cohort of trainees starting on the project in September and we are running another group picking day on September 25th and we need volunteers! If you are looking for a fun and rewarding day out with your colleagues and our trainees please get in touch with us on firstname.lastname@example.org or call us on 01213590700!
