All in all, it was a great day and I feel prepared for the next incident that comes my way. I love being part of the service and feel it benefits me, my work and obviously the people we rescue.
Without BAM’s support all year round and through the Making TIME
scheme, it would be an even greater burden on me personally, and I may be unable to keep it going. BAM’s Making TIME For Communities programme empowers employees and projects to make a real difference to the communities we work in. Every employee at BAM receives two days of paid leave each year to volunteer within their communities. Last year alone BAM people volunteered an incredible 12,400 hours- doing everything from mentoring young people, coaching sports teams, re-building a centre for the homeless to acting as dementia friends. It is just one of the ways we make time for our communities and hopefully make a real difference.
