In February the RaW ES Product Service Management team had the opportunity to help out at the Riding for Disabled Tall Timbers property at Box Hill.
Not really knowing what lay ahead, a team of 15 volunteers spent the day painting oil on the walls of the indoor riding arena, de-cobwebbing, and repairing electric fences – very tiring for us office workers.
However feeling refreshed after a BBQ lunch and with one activity left to complete all ‘our allocated tasks’ the challenge was on … to apply oil to the outdoor arena fencing. The team spirit kicked in, we worked together and with a sense of achievement we met the challenge. From our perspective it was very satisfying to be able to see the results of our efforts.
Fortunately the weather was kind and we did not have the 40+ degree days which meant we were able to complete all our activities.
It was great to work with team mates away from the normal work environment – getting messy for a worthy cause. The team had a great time and it is our aim to continue our involvement with Tall Timbers. We all came away feeling a sense of achievement and we hope we have made a difference for the children starting their programs.
