DTZ volunteers take time out to help Bristol educational charity

Twenty-five staff, including Directors, from the Bristol offices of global real estate services firm, DTZ have been helping out at leading charitable science centre, At-Bristol this summer.

The DTZ volunteers donned sheep ears and entertained families as part of Championsheeps Live! a farmyard-style sports day featuring family favourite Shaun the Sheep and friends.

Rebekah Formosa, DTZ’s Charity Representative in Bristol, said: “Being a sheep for the day has been one of the most entertaining days at work we’ve had! DTZ has a volunteering policy in place allowing us to help charities during the year and At-Bristol has provided us with a rewarding opportunity to do this with its Championsheeps Live! event.”

Jo Bryant, At-Bristol’s Community Engagement and Volunteer Manager, said: “Having DTZ volunteering over the summer has been brilliant. The staff have been really enthusiastic, helpful and all have looked great in their sheep ears! As a charity, At-Bristol depends on the generous help of volunteers to be able to run extra events and 25 additional people over the holiday period has really helped us out, so a huge thank you to everyone involved.”

Tim Davis, Head of DTZ’s Bristol office, added: “Each year we get an opportunity to give something back to the community and helping At-Bristol, a local educational charity, has been a great success for us at DTZ in Bristol. We are truly impressed by the charity and the service they provide in the city and look forward to seeing the new exhibitions they produce in the future.”
