More than 30 people from Alcoa, Ashley Manor and Blue Cross took part in the fishing trip along the Anglesea River last Friday which also provided the elderly residents with an opportunity to participate in fishing activities, venture on walks, socialise with Alcoa employees and help cook a barbecue lunch.
Alcoa Anglesea and Point Henry Community Relations Officer Anthea Doran said the fishing trip was part of Alcoa’s commitment to partnering stronger communities and making the communities in which it operated stronger and more sustainable.
“Each year we allow our employees to volunteer one day in the community as part of the Making the Link volunteer program for worthy projects and events such as this week’s fishing trip,” Ms Doran said.
“Both the elderly residents and our employees get great enjoyment out of the fishing trip and this year’s trip has been held again due to the overwhelming success of the first one held last year.
“Last year our employees volunteered more than 9000 hours to community projects.”
