Corporate Volunteers at Wantage Market Garden

We were delighted to have some corporate volunteering take place at Wantage Market Garden recently.

Since Covid-19, many of the regular volunteering roles at Style Acre are on pause so that we can keep everyone safe. But one place we can have volunteers safely is the Wantage Market Garden. And with such a large space, extra bodies can make big gardening jobs look like light work!

So we were delighted to welcome corporate volunteers from local company Vertex Pharmaceuticals to our Wantage Market Garden recently. They pruned, painted and hedge trimmed their way around the garden over two days.

To make things safe, we thoroughly risk assessed the activities the volunteers would be doing. And everyone was able to social distance in the large space of the garden.

We’re very grateful to our corporate volunteer groups who visit us for team days. They get to spend a day outside in the fresh air learning new skills and we get lots of muscle power to help our garden team get through some of those big jobs!

Thank you to Vertex for their ongoing support. To find out more about corporate volunteer days, get in touch with our volunteering team.
