A huge thanks to Zenith for taking part in a volunteering gardening day at Marie Curie west midlands hospice as part of our sponsorship this year. We have had fantastic feedback from the CSR team at Zenith who said:
‘The staff involved found it a very rewarding day and really enjoyed the opportunity to help. The 2 gentleman that looked after us throughout the day were very informative and seemed to really enjoy the gardens and the work that they do at Marie Curie – we were in good hands for the day.
The gardens are really beautiful and there is obviously a lot of care and attention that goes into maintaining them to such a high standard by the team of volunteers. It was great to see how much is done at such little cost – such as planting plants from seed to either sell or use within the garden as well as the vegetable patches and the compost heaps used to recycle all the waste that the garden produces.
Some of the volunteers talked to people staying at the hospice who had their doors open to enjoy the gardens and the work being done definitely felt appreciated. It clearly makes their stay a more pleasant an experience when they have a nice view and some peace and quiet to enjoy.’
