Giving Something Back roundup

Our Giving Something Back programme allows our employees to give something back to their local community by supporting the local causes that are important to them.

We are keen to support causes that are close to our employee's hearts in addition to our recognised company charity, Hospitality Action.


Olleco Wales donated £250 to a local Children's Cycle Speedway Club that is close to where one of our Credit Controllers lives. They were looking for help and donations to maintain the cycle track and surrounding area.

Olleco Wales
An Olleco Wales Financial Controller, presented a cheque for £250 to the Friends of Fishpond Park. The Friends of Fishpond Park is an excellent example of a group that has come together to enhance their local park for the good of their community. The group is made up of volunteers and was founded in 2016 after the park had been neglected for a number of years. Their hard work and dedication has earned the park a prestigious Green Flag Award two years running. They have now also completed the refurbishment of the fountain which involved removing hundreds of fish from the feature so that major leaks could be fixed and the fountain rebuilt to its original glory.
