Open+Direct Dungiven Staff ‘Go Back to School’ with Local Clean-up!

1 Mins read

Local staff from Open+Direct’s Dungiven branch found themselves back in the playground recently as they took part in a tidy-up at St. Mary’s Primary School, Gortnaghey. Open+Direct Branch Manager Georgina McVey and five of her colleagues rolled up their sleeves and spent time painting, picking up litter and clearing pathways, with the added help of Principal Mr Francis Lagan.

Staff from the local insurance broker have had a busy few months of weeding, painting, planting and picking up litter as part of their support for the Open+Direct Best Kept Awards, which the company is sponsoring for the first time this year. The final awards ceremony of the year will be taking place in the Guildhall in Derry/Londonderry on the 20th October 2015.

Georgina McVey, Store Manager at Open+Direct’s Dungiven branch commented:

“We were thrilled when St. Mary’s Primary School approached us to get involved with their clean-up. My colleagues and I were so excited to get stuck in and help brighten up the school! Teams from our branches across Northern Ireland have also been helping local community groups in Ballymena and Saintfield as part of our involvement with the Best Kept Awards. Activities like this really bring everyone together and create a great civic spirit.”

Principal of St. Mary’s Mr Francis Lagan added:

“I had a great afternoon with the Open+Direct Dungiven staff and would like to thank them for coming along. It’s great to see local businesses like Open+Direct getting involved, showing their pride and eagerness to make a positive impact on the community. Their enthusiasm was infectious and they’d be welcome back anytime!”
