Zenith supports ‘Live at Home' scheme

Zenith has rounded off a busy community programme in 2013 by volunteering to help with the local ‘Live at Home’ scheme Christmas lunch.

The scheme is run by the MHA, a major provider of not-for-profit care homes, housing and support services for older people.

Live at Home assists those living in their own homes who are over 65, providing a support network.

The Christmas lunch involved Zenith employees picking up members from their homes in electric cars and taking them to the local church hall.

The Zenith employees cooked, served and hosted the lunch for 20 members then dropped them back at home afterwards.

Throughout the year Zenith employees have also been visiting Live at Home scheme participants to provide training on computers and the use of the internet in their own homes, on a weekly basis.

Other community work includes the Ahead Partnership, taking part in voluntary projects and assisting with the social and economic regeneration of Leeds.

Specific events include improving and maintaining a conservation area, and volunteering in local schools.

Zenith has also sponsored a local initiative to encourage growing of edible plants.

Marisa Jerrison, head of human resources and development for Zenith said: "Our employees are actively involved in community events throughout the year and we are never short of volunteers. We will continue with and look to grow our partnerships in 2014, to further enhance our ability to give something back."
