At the beginning of August the digital team from our partner Tesco Bank swapped their day jobs for paint brushes to help transform one of our flats for a young person.

Whenever we have a change over of tenancies we do a full clean and painting and decorating to make sure that our flats are always of a high quality, providing a welcoming and safe new home for our young people. The support of corporate volunteers is invaluable. Not only do they save the charity money, they ensure a quick efficient turnaround so that no young person is left waiting for a roof over their head.

We are Tesco Bank’s Charity of the year, and volunteering with us is just one of the ways they have got involved with the Rock Trust since March. They have gone above and beyond in their support of our work – climbing mountains, jumping out of planes, running marathons, and continuously helping us to raise awareness of youth homelessness in Scotland.

Over the next few months teams from Tesco Bank will be taking on more gruelling challenges, and our very own Sleep Out in November. In addition, another team will be getting their hands dirty with a day of redecorating at one of our flats for young people.

We are delighted with the extent of Tesco Bank’s engagement and support so far, and are looking forward to the next 6 months of the partnership!
