We know you love volunteering and giving back to our local community. In 2019/20 over 5,500 colleagues from across the business were involved in volunteering activities during company time.
Which adds up to an astounding 66,000 volunteering hours! Click the link below to read about just some of our recent Halewood Heroes who have done a fantastic job volunteering in the local community.
Neil Mercer has raised over £5,000 for the true superheroes at the NHS by dressing up as Spiderman on his once daily run to cheer up children during the Coronavirus lock down.
David Farrell registered to be an NHS Volunteer Responder within minutes of the national request going live. David told us, “I decided to help as I knew I had time on my hands with being off work and wanted to make a difference. I’d like to think if it was myself or my family in a similar situation in the future, that others would do the same.”
Graham Tubey contacted St Helens and Knowsley Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust who were really pleased to take him on as a volunteer as they’d seen a large reduction in their volunteer workforce due to shielding or self-isolation.
Ian Broady has kept himself busy over the last few weeks volunteering for our brilliant NHS. The NHS have provided care to Ian’s family and millions of others over the years and it was time to give something back.
Mike Stevens says the favourite part of his day job as a CMM engineer in the Body Shop at JLR Halewood is working with 3D printers.

Chris Clarry, Chris Thomas, Zac Simmons, Steve Gallagher and John Williams are all Production Leaders who you would usually find working in Trim & Final but they volunteered to work for our Business Protection team, supporting them and other teams to look after our site whilst many of us weren’t there.
Jack Gynane is a second year maintenance apprentice in Trim & Final. Jack is putting his 3D printer to good use by making visors for Merseyside’s NHS staff to use in the busiest hospitals and care homes. Jack has made an impressive 400 so far and has plenty more on order!
