Colleagues from a number of local stores took part in the corporate volunteer day, helping our volunteer gardeners and facilities team carry out a range of maintenance tasks in and around the Hospice building and grounds.
Armed with paintbrushes, brooms and trowels, the Tesco team helped with jobs ranging from painting the entrance walkway to sprucing up the shrubbery in time for the summer.
Jordan Poole, from Tesco in Edinburgh Way, said: “The hospice does some fantastic work for local people, really making a difference to those in need and their families. We’re really pleased that we’ve been able to support them in our own little way.”
St Clare facilities manager Paul Miller said: ““We would like to thank everyone from Tesco who gave up their time to volunteer at the Hospice and for all the wonderful work they carried out. It was great to see everyone working so hard and with such enthusiasm, and we really are grateful for all they achieved while they were here, helping make the Hospice an even more welcoming place for the patients and visitors who come here.”
