Working with Business
Bridewell's beautiful six acre walled garden and vineyard in the Cotswolds provide a unique and creative environment for our business partners. Conveniently we are just 25 minutes from the centre of Oxford, 90 minutes from central London and 10 minutes from Finstock station (served by direct trains from Paddington and Worcestershire). We also have plenty of on-site parking.
Would you like to spend a day with your colleagues out of the office, making a positive impact ? Corporate team-building days at Bridewell are a hands-on and active experience. You'll learn about how we work and what Social & Therapeutic Horticulture involves. But we also expect you to get stuck in so you'll be doing anything from digging borders, to repointing a wall or replacing posts for the grape vines. You will be outside whatever the weather although there is always warm shelter in our polytunnel.
We aim to give you a really rewarding experience based on a day of working together in the open air. We provide a Bridewell team member to brief and supervise.
Corporate days are a great opportunity for work colleagues to come together as a team and underake practical projects in beautiful surroundings while making a positive impact on Bridewell and the vital service we provide. Over the last few years we have welcomed teams from organisations such as Elsevier and Nielsen – almost all of whom have come back again. We can accept groups of up to 15 people.
We ask for a small contribution of £500 for corporate days which is to cover our insurance, staffing costs, resources, lunch - and adds a little to our fundraising pot. For a group of 15 this represents a donation of just £33 per person per day. If your group is smaller than 15 people, please contact us to discuss how we could make your day work.
