21st May 2015
On May 21st the Hammersmith L’Oréal office maximised their Citizen Day by supporting 4 community organisations in the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham.

Organised by Works4U, 96 L’Oréal employees came together to support the deprived area of Sand’s End in Fulham. The volunteers worked with four different organisations within the community, which are all located within walking distance of each other, who all work and support each other on a daily basis. Combined, these community groups offer support and guidance to children from a very young age till they become teenagers.

The L’Oreal group of volunteers were divided up into teams to tackle each community location needing support. One team helped a mental health charity “Friends of Cathja”, another worked on a developing community farm and the final team repainted the meeting hall of a local Scouts group.
