A library’s garden has been spruced up by a team of Leeds workers.
Nine staff members from Cap Hpi, which provides vehicle history checks, pulled on their gardening gloves at Oakwood Library to help prepare it for after-school reading clubs. The team did weeding and planting, cleared raised beds and created space for an edible garden to grow vegetables.
Claire Atkinson, product manager with Cap Hpi, said: “The volunteering idea came from Joel Albyn, director of innovation and product management, who was keen to get out into the community and support local projects and at the same time develop important collaborative working skills to bring the group closer together.
“We felt like we achieved a great deal and helping to make the library a stimulating environment for the after school readers gave us a tremendous buzz.”
