Lloyds

Lloyds Banking Group is supporting employee volunteering, with more than 5,000 staff members taking part in the 2016 Give and Gain initiative.

One third (33%) of Lloyds Banking Group employee volunteers participating in the Give and Gain scheme will take part in skills-based volunteering work.

Give and Gain Day, organised by Business in the Community (BITC), takes place on 20 May 2016.

Lloyds Banking Group has committed to providing 240,000 employee volunteering hours to community projects in 2016, and plans to contribute 2.3 million volunteering hours by 2020.

Kamel Hothi, head of colleague volunteering and fundraising at Lloyds Banking Group, said: “We are proud to participate in Give and Gain Week again this year. Our ambition is to make a difference in the communities where we live and work to help Britain prosper. Supporting and encouraging our colleagues to use their skills to volunteer for the causes that matter to them plays a key part in achieving that.”
