Here at Camelot, we believe the wellbeing of our people is super important. We’re always on the lookout for fun new ideas to improve wellbeing and we’ve recently turned to animals to help us on our journey… And so far this year, we’ve had not just one, but two animal-themed National Lottery-funded projects join us at the office.
Miniature Donkeys for Wellbeing
First up we met Miniature Donkeys for Wellbeing. They’re a project that uses donkeys as a mood-booster to improve the wellbeing of people in the community, specifically individuals with dementia and special needs.
On one sunny Monday morning in March, we welcomed four miniature donkeys at our Watford HQ where people had the chance to pet and walk the adorable animals. It’s safe to say they brightened up everyone’s day, see for yourself…
If donkeys weren’t enough, we then gave our people the chance to meet another group of animals. Earlier this week we opened our auditorium to some very special guests from Noah’s A.R.T. - a social enterprise that uses animals to improve mental health through animal therapy and interaction.
The people of Camelot got to meet some furry, and not so furry, friends as they played with the two cavalier king charles spaniels, fed the guinea pigs, cuddled the pet mice and met 25-year old Herman the tortoise.
Just look at the joy they brought…
Our continued focus on wellbeing
Offering an environment where everyone can bring their whole selves to work is very important to us here at Camelot. Which is why we continue to offer resources, support and new wellbeing initiatives to help our people be their best (animals are just a small part of this!).
