The Qube get involved with Castlehaven Community Association for Project Dirt
On July 26th a group of 13 willing volunteers from Posterscope, PSI and MKTG spent a day ‘Project Dirting’ with Castlehaven Community Association (CCA), an award winning community association in the heart of Camden Town.
The group were tasked with seasonal garden maintenance with a particular focus on the Association’s new Horticulture Hub in the morning whilst the afternoon was spent supporting and playing a football match with people with a range of disabilities.
Gary Wheelan, Client Director at MKTG said, “It was a really well organised day, which meant we could get stuck in from the start and feel like we had properly made a difference by the end. The Castlehaven team were really accommodating and they had plenty of tasks for us all to do – from shovelling rubble to sawing wooden sleepers, we could see the desired end result that we were helping towards.
The afternoon was brilliant, playing football with the disabled football team who train at the facilities on Wednesday afternoons was such a treat – even though they beat us!
It was a very different day to the usual one sat at my desk and I would recommend Project Dirt and in particular Castlehaven, to anyone looking to get involved with a volunteer project through work or independently.”
