Volunteers from Leeds Building Society spent a day improving the facilities for visitors to the Donkey Sanctuary in Leeds.

The group of 16 from the Financial Crime team took advantage of the company’s volunteering scheme.

This allows all Society employees a day’s paid leave a year to help and volunteer in the community.

Jane Shepherdson, Financial Crime Team Leader, said: “Our focus was to dig a channel for the natural spring to flow through, and also to rebuild the pond so that new life can start to grow again.”

Cathryn Dixon, Centre Manager at the Donkey Sanctuary, said: “It was intense manual labour in typical British weather, and the area now looks fabulous thanks to their hard work.”
