An Aberdeen company has done their bit to help keep the city tidy by volunteering their time to do a litter pick in the city centre.

Employees from CBRE helped out the local community, spending time helping with the upkeep of the St Nicholas church yard.

Aberdeen Inspired is encouraging other businesses looking for volunteering opportunities to get involved in environmental initiatives.

Innes Walker, Aberdeen Inspired city centre manager, said: “It was great to see CBRE leading by example and showing their commitment to the local community in this way. We would like to extend our thanks to their team who gave up their time to help benefit the city.

“It is so important for businesses to engage in their city and efforts like this make a massive contribution to communities, individuals, visitors and the life of the city as a whole. We would urge others looking for volunteer opportunities as part of their Corporate Social Responsibility to consider doing the same."

Amie Canning, a Surveyor with CBRE, added: “As a business we are deeply concerned by the climate emergency and care strongly about the part we can play in improving it. We are committed to doing everything we can to make a positive difference to the communities and cities in which we are a part. We want to help make them safe, sustainable and more attractive places for people to be. It was a pleasure to work with Aberdeen Inspired on this initiative and we would encourage other businesses to find out how they can help too.”
