South Hook LNG Volunteers in the Community
Five teams of South Hook LNG staff volunteered to spend another productive Community Day with local community groups, carrying out tasks such as charcoal making, giving buildings a lick of paint, gardening, dismantling sheds and restoring furniture.
Proud to be able to support many community groups and projects over the years, South Hook LNG’s Community Development Programme is dedicated to continuing support in areas of safety, the environment, education and wellbeing, key areas that drive the day-to-day activities of the Terminal. “Our people are our greatest asset”, said Yasser S. Al Jaidah, Director & General Manager at South Hook LNG. “Our Community Days are a great opportunity for our staff to spend some valuable time supporting just a few of the wonderful community groups that operate across our county”.
The South Hook LNG teams of volunteers, armed with paint brushes, gloves and gardening tools, spent a warm, sunny day working with some of the volunteers that support a number of different community groups, including: Narberth’s Bloomfield Community Centre, Pembroke 21C Community Association, Pembrokeshire FRAME and MIND Pembrokeshire. Rhiannon Mortimer-Thomas, South Hook LNG Computer Maintenance Management Systems Assistant, one of the volunteers, said “This was a fantastic opportunity to get an insight into what Pembrokeshire FRAME actually does for our community. I had no idea how big the charity was and how many volunteers they rely on to keep it functioning day-to-day”.
Pembrokeshire Association of Voluntary Services (PAVS) supported South Hook LNG in the organisation of the Community Day.
