A team of handy helpers from NI Water recently paid a visit to the Southern Area Hospice in Newry to help enhance current facilities.

Volunteers from across the organization helped them with the important task of flattening and flagging the stone area for a new greenhouse, erecting handrails, heighten flower beds and hedge cutting.



The Hospice provides invaluable support and care to people who are suffering from diseases including cancer and multiple sclerosis.

They aim to provide the best quality of life for patients and their families.

As part of NI Water’s ‘Cares Challenge’ programme, activities are planned for various groups throughout Northern Ireland each year and are set up in partnership with Business in the Community’s NI Cares Programme.



The programme identifies organisations and charities within the local community who need a helping hand with physical tasks such as gardening and painting.

NI Water’s volunteering policy increases the time employees can spend undertaking volunteering activities to help benefit the greater community.

The ‘Cares Challenge’ has been a huge success and continues to grow in strength with volunteering hours of over 7,000.
