WCRS put 'toy building' skills to the test for a good cause

WCRS put 'toy building' skills to the test for a good cause

WCRS has put their ‘toy building’ skills to the test to support Essex based charity PARC.

PARC (Essex) was developed by a group of parents back in 1995 due to the lack of support and play opportunities for children with additional and special educational needs. They have now grown to help over 500 families in the Essex area, a number which continues to rise every year.

When planning a recent team conference, Robert Logan, Managing Director of WCRS was looking for a team building idea which would test team collaboration skills. Always keen to challenge the status quo and develop new and different ways of working, Robert came up with a toy building exercise which not only worked well within the scope of the event, but also provided the opportunity to donate some much-needed toys to a local children’s charity.

The company was split into teams which were tasked with constructing the toys as efficiently and effectively as possible. The exercise became a fun and great team building initiative, ultimately benefiting the school and its children.

Robert Logan commented “With the knowledge that their hard work and efforts were going to benefit such a fantastic charity, it was great to see the teams really get into the spirit of task. The exercise proved to be a great success challenging the teams to plan and deliver a successful end result, knowing that at the end of the task the toys would be going to a good cause.”

The exercise resulted in some 20 brand new toys constructed and ready for the children to use at the PARC centre in Braintree Essex.

Friederike Walter, Digital Media and Events Manager commented: As a charity we rely heavily on support from local community and business, so it is just fantastic for WCRS to come up with such a great and fun idea which the children at the centre are able to benefit from.
