Colleagues from Asda’s ISD Team helped out at Hannah House Children’s Hospice this June after the service was chosen for their 2014 volunteering challenge. The Asda team also raised £175 with the support of the Asda Community Foundation to buy materials, plants and fun garden decorations.
Over two days, 20 colleagues were welcomed at Hannah House, which offers short break care for children with complex care needs. The colleagues helped to tidy up the garden so it would be ready for the children to use over the summer. They got stuck in with power washing the patio, re-felting the shed roof, painting fences, sprucing up the decking and potting flowers, fruit and vegetable plants.
Jo Dodd, manager at Hannah House, said: “We were delighted to find out Asda had chosen Hannah House as somewhere they would like to come and volunteer. It has been lovely having the Asda Colleagues here and we’ve been very lucky with the weather too. We’re looking forward to enjoying the outdoor space even more now.”
Huge thanks from the team, children and families to everyone that helped out.
