Social recruiting Mar/Apr 2021

What have you been up to? get in touch!

As our Social page in the magazine over the years has shown, recruiters are extremely generous with both their time and money in helping charities and those disadvantaged communities. This has been highlighted during lockdown, where pupils had to stay away from schools and learn remotely on their own computers or laptops. However, what about the children struggling to learn due to having no access to technology at home?

Yolk will plant one oak tree in Blaen Bran Community Woodland in Cwmbran, South Wales for every candidate it places. Gareth Jones and Nici Jones (above) lead the campaign
