Volunteers have been sprucing up the garden at Weston Hospicecare to enable patients to make the most of the sunshine.
A 19-strong team from the Royal Bank Of Scotland (RBS) spent a day painting benches and gazebos, varnishing fences and carrying out other jobs in the garden at the hospice’s Jackson-Barstow House in Uphill.
The volunteers carry out a wide range of jobs for charities, churches, schools and sports clubs throughout the year.
Rob Lovell, from RBS, said: “It’s about team-building and supporting the community. We have a bit of fun, but we work hard to get something out of it as a team, too.”
Darren Fairchild, the hospice’s estates and facilities manager, said: “We’re enormously grateful to the RBS team for the work they have done – they really have done a superb job to ensure our garden is looking its best for patients to enjoy this summer.”
