Haldane Fisher staff Andrew Laird and Geoff Niblock (pictured here) recently took part in the BITC Give and Gain Team Challenge Day which involved volunteering their time and resources for the Crossfire Trust in Darkley, Keady, Co Armagh. Crossfire Trust is a registered charity which cares for the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of the people, primarily in South Armagh.

Haldane Fisher takes part in the scheme every year and this year it was a joint team challenge day along with local companies FPM and Invest NI. All volunteers helped with general house-keeping and gardening tasks including clearing paths, weeding, planting flowers and vegetables, removing posts (see photo - as proof!) and fencing. Painting tasks unfortunately had to be postponed due to the wet weather!

Andrew Laird, Group HR Manager, said "The objective of this exercise is to put something back into our local community and to try to make a difference. But also to have some fun at the same time." A sentiment which is shared throughout the Haldane Fisher Group.
