A group of volunteers from Lloyds Bank spent the day helping out at We Grow social enterprise.

The team helped to paint the We Grow Farm Shop. They also processed a lot material in the composting bays.

We Grow Social Enterprise Manager Daniel Curle said:

“This is amazing because this week we will be planting a lot of crops for our second harvest of the year. The compost can be used to build more fertility in the beds that have already grown a crop for our veg boxes.

The volunteers also worked very hard in helping us transform what was our wood work tunnel back into a growing space. The tunnel was full of old tools, lots of furniture and material collected over the years. I am pleased to say the volunteers have helped us massively, the poly tunnel is now cleared and the unusable materials and furniture have been removed from the site. The poly tunnel has been Rotovated and it’s now ready for planting.”

This summer, the team at We Grow are supporting young people on a pilot summer work placement scheme. In this time, they plan to do a group project, transforming the wood work tunnel in a mixed soft fruit and berry garden for the fruit and veg boxes.

The work done by the volunteers means that the team at We Grow are now ready to plant, using the compost processed, a mix of fruit and berry shrubs and turn the space into a productive growing area.

“A massive thank you to Alex and the Lloyds team for the huge impact they have given us, not only last week but also their commitment to We Grow and Autism Initiatives over the years. The work they did on Friday is significant, giving us a boost to keep on top of the site and more time to improve the quality of the site and service for the people we support. We are delighted with how the day went, and impressed with how much they achieved!”

Thank you again to everyone for your hard work, commitment and can do attitude that made the day a massive success.

The team from Lloyds Bank will also be hiking up Snowdon to raise money for Autism Initiatives. Keep an eye on our website for more updates about how the hike went.
