From whiteboards to wheelbarrows for IT team

Ten volunteers from our IT department spent a day revamping the garden area at a children’s Sure Start centre. 

The team tackled a list of jobs at Horsforth Children’s Centre, including cutting grass, weeding, painting fences, planting bedding plants and creating a herb garden.

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

Claire Birch, Horsforth Children’s Centre manager, said: “We would like to say a massive thanks to all the Leeds Building Society volunteers for their time and hard work. There’s been a major change to our garden area and it looks beautiful now.”
