STAFF from SSE Airtricity Utility Solutions took a break from their usual day job this week as they took part in the National Spring Clean by cleaning and carrying out repairs at the Abbey Centre in Ballyshannon.

Members of the SSE Airtricity Utility Solutions staff set the bar for all other spring cleaners as their hard day’s work consisted of cleaning gutters, fixing light fittings, putting up vents and power hosing the entire building to a gleaming standard. 

Through its Community at Heart scheme, SSE Airtricity gives every employee the opportunity to take a day away from their usual schedule and donate their time to a charity or community group of their choice. In the past, staff members have volunteered for organisations such as Barnardo’s, the National Children's Hospital and the Irish Cancer Society.

The idea for the clean-up came from SSE Airtricity's colleagues at Donegal Co. Council and the team at the Utility Solutions’ Donegal depot were only too pleased to help out and kick off this month's National Spring Clean.
