Ogi is encouraging staff to make a positive impact in its full fibre communities, providing up to two paid days each year for community and charitable work.

Team members racked up more than 2,000 hours spent volunteering in the last year and to date, more than 70 projects across south Wales have benefitted from the programme.

Ogi staff nominated Age Cymru, Blood Bikes Wales and the Wildlife Trust of South and West Wales, as the company’s core charities.

Community Liaison Officer, Louise Clement said: “Volunteering is a fantastic way to get to know your community and meet new people. It can offer you a break from your day-to-day job and you often get to do things you wouldn’t normally do.”

Clement recently helped transform a patch of wasteland in Llantwit Major into a community garden with bug houses, a veg plot and an interactive play area.
