Staff Volunteer at Birdsong Garden

7th October

A group of budding volunteers from Iceland, Morrisons Daily and Checkers Xpress volunteered at BirdSong Garden – a wonderful local organisation dedicated to reconnecting people with nature via gardening, small farming and community.

The team were even treated to a hearty lunch of homemade soup in recognition of their efforts! This was not only an excellent team building exercise but an opportunity to support a worthy cause.
