Volunteers paint on smiles as they lend a hand brightening pavilion

CALL centre workers swapped their phones for paintbrushes to help decorate Chaddesden pavilion.

Ten members of staff from Webhelp UK, in Pride Park, spent yesterday giving the changing rooms a facelift. The Volunteer Action Day came as part of a community link between the call centre and Derby City Council – a partnership which has developed since the firm came to Derby last year, bringing more than 1,000 jobs. Five changing rooms and the referee’s room were redecorated by the team.

Felicity Cowan, Webhelp UK team leader, helped organise the event. She said: “We wanted to do something for the community as Webhelp created a lot of jobs. We asked each department of the company to nominate people who were good role models, people who try very hard every day and set a good example. They were then chosen to help out at the event.

“I was put in contact with the city council who gave us some options on how we could help the community.

“We felt this was the best choice as it meant we could all get together and have a go.”

Felicity said the event was a great success.

She added: “We had a really good day and everybody enjoyed themselves. It was great for team building.”

Councillor Sara Bolton said she was very grateful for the work that had been done.

She said: “This is a well-used sports pavilion which is utilised every weekend for the football matches.

“The improvements that have been made are valued by the users.

“The changing rooms were looking a bit tired and they haven’t been decorated for three years or so.

“The neighbourhood board were looking at paying for the decorating to be done but now it has been done free for us.

“I thank everybody involved for their community spirit. The changing rooms look much fresher and cleaner. ”

Webhelp UK, formerly known as Hero TSC, handles customer service and sales calls on behalf of broadcaster and telecommunications giant Sky. Daniel Jones, customer call adviser at the company, said he enjoyed helping out. The 26-year-old, of Boyer Street, Derby said: “Not only was it a change of scenery it was a great feeling knowing we were giving something back to the community.”
