Salesforce Volunteers Help Give Callum the Bedroom he’s Dreamed About!
Just before Christmas 2014, a team of Salesforce volunteers rolled up their sleeves and got stuck into a WellChild project to help build Callum a new bedroom. Callum has Spina Bifida which has damaged his spine and made him very unwell and unable to walk.
WellChild’s ‘Helping Hands’ project provides home improvement assistance to those who need it. Over a 4 day period, volunteers helped transform Callum’s bedroom into his dream Formula One themed room.
Here’s what our Salesforce volunteers thought of the day:
“I found the WellChild program to be well run, fun, hard work but without question incredibly rewarding. Even with my poor DIY skills I was able to contribute throughout and even gained a few tips along the way. To be part of the 2 day transformation was incredibly rewarding and to see the smile on Calum’s face on the TV was priceless. I look forward to the next make over with WellChild,” said Jon Bennett, Strategic Account Manager, Salesforce.
