Analox staff returned for a day on the farm to help setup the CornShed festival, which took place last weekend (Friday 26 and Saturday 27 June 2015).
The festival, which was held on Sexhow Park Farm in Hutton Rudby, brought people together for two days of live music, and local ales and beers.
The staff volunteered as part of Analox’s Charity Volunteering scheme – staff are entitled to one volunteering day a year, and these days are organised not only to give support to local causes, but bring staff who work in different departments together. Staff helped put up fencing, move furniture into marquees and cleaned tables and chairs.
Mel Smith, Marketing Executive at Analox, was one of the volunteers. She said “Helping out at the Cornshed was very tiring, but really rewarding. It’s great to be able to give something back to the local community and we’re all glad everyone had such a great time over the weekend.”
The festival was a massive success, with music from Oasisjam, The Longtall Beatles, The Lemontops and Brewed Slowly. Proceeds from the event will go to the Great North Air Ambulance
