Paris Smith is offering 200 days of its employee’s time towards volunteering during its 200th anniversary year. Paris Smith has been awarded the Southampton Business Award 2018 by the Hampshire Chamber of Commerce in the category of ‘Established/Long Standing Business’.

It has offered the opportunity to all staff to participate in one day of volunteering leave during 2018, with the firm organising various volunteering opportunities which can be undertaken individually or in groups.

The firm which has offices in Southampton and Winchester, wanted to cement its commitment to supporting the local community and will undertake a variety of work from administrative tasks through to gardening and painting.

Claire Merritt, partner and leading on the initiative said: “We felt that it was really fitting for our 200th year to use this number in our mission to give something back locally.  It’s our opportunity to feel the benefits of actively being out in the community but also making a difference as well.  Staff will get the opportunity to work with people across the business who they might not usually work with, as well as taking away with them some great memories of helping others outside of their usual working environment.”
