Caring staff offer help to local communities

A CARING company has offered its help to local communities.

Sun Microsystems in Linlithgow wants to hear about worthwhile projects which need extra, unpaid help from its staff during the firm’s forthcoming annual Worldwide Volunteer Week.

In the past Sun workers have tackled everything from community clean-ups to taking part in charity fundraisers. They are hoping to make a similar impact during this year’s Sun Volunteer Week, which runs from April 8 to 15.

A spokesman said: “The Week is our way of giving back something to the community in which we live and work. As ever, we’re looking for lots of great ideas from the public on how we can make a real difference during this year’s event.”

Anyone with suggestions should write to the Community Affairs Team at Sun Microsystems Scotland BV, Springfield, Linlithgow. Alternatively you can call 01506 672874 or e-mail
