TUI Travel rolls out volunteering programme

Tour operator TUI Travel has launched a volunteering initiative, which will offer employees the opportunity to get involved with community projects.

TUI Travel, which owns brands Thomson and First Choice Holidays, started the programme as the first of many volunteering projects. The programme saw employees redecorate Keech Hospice Care, a local charity shop which helps children and adults with life-limiting conditions.

Martin Gash, director of HR, said: “As one of the main employers in the Luton area, engaging with our local community is a real priority for Thomson and First Choice Holidays.

“We will now be actively encouraging employees to support local charities and as a result I hope that organisations such as the Keech Hospice will benefit from our support for years to come.”
