Q. Do we need to bring lunch for our staff on our Difference Day?

Q. Can we do a half day Difference Day?
A. Yes, we can arrange a shorter Difference Day if your company are unable to give a full day, however it is more difficult to find projects that can be started and finished in a half day. Ideally a full day’s labour will give your company the opportunity to really make a difference.
