Our experience of working with 15Billionebp over the past few years has been amazing and one we have greatly enjoyed. The company’s Work Week programme is a fantastic opportunity for staff to volunteer and do something totally different – an experience that has been very rewarding for those involved. I would encourage all businesses to consider working with 15Billionebp. The programmes are fun, creative and well run and they really help you to make the most out of your volunteering activities. It’s a working partnership that benefits everybody involved.

The 15billionebp has been fantastic for our coaches. They have enjoyed working in the schools, and engaging in sporting activities to keep the children healthy, while educating them about the different jobs in sports. The enthusiasm from the children has made it easier for the coaches to provide fun and productive activities, and this interaction with the school would not have been been possible without the brilliant work of 15billionebp.
