PRESS RELEASE

Weird Fish team give back to the Cheltenham community

Staff from Weird Fish volunteered at the Oakley Neighbourhood Project on Friday 12 June by painting one of its classrooms.

Naomi Hill, Stuart xx and Ron xx from the Weird Fish team were invited to help paint a couple of training rooms at The Oakley Neighbourhood Project, a local community centre in Cheltenham. The project offers help and support with employment skills, counselling, community family days and food banks.

Caroline from Business in the Community organised the volunteering project and joined the Weird Fish staff members during the day, while the centre provided the hard workers with a constant supply of refreshments.

The day of volunteering has kick-started a bond between the centre and Weird Fish and the clothing retailer will continue to offer a helping hand with volunteering activities in the future.

Naomi Hill, PR co-ordinator at Weird Fish, said: “The Oakley Neighbourhood Project in our local home of Cheltenham is a really amazing place and we were so happy we could do something to help as a local business.”

John Stockton, managing director at Weird Fish, said: “Being a local business we really want to give back to the community we live and work in. We want to offer help in whatever way we can, from weeding to offering work experience placements.”
