From databases to digging for Leeds Financial Crime team

A team of 16 volunteers from our Financial Crime team spent a day improving the facilities for visitors to the Donkey Sanctuary in Leeds.

They were taking advantage of the volunteering scheme, which allows all Society employees a day’s paid leave each year to help in the community.

The volunteers focused on an area which required re-landscaping as the stream and pond had dried up and become covered with large stones.

Cathryn Dixon, Centre Manager at the Donkey Sanctuary, said: “We depend on people volunteering and giving the gift of time to us. The wonderful group from Leeds Building Society spent their time doing work on a new pond to help with drainage works within our grounds, and we are so grateful for their time.”
