Staff at Bradford-based laundry chemical manufacturer Christeyns spent the day at Newhall Park Primary School, getting hands on with a range of gardening tasks as part of a new raised bed project.
Christeyns, which has its head office in Rutland Street, offers all 130 members of staff the opportunity to take time out to help the community through a variety of regular volunteering initiatives. Newhall Park Community Primary School is in Bierley and provides education for over 400 children from ages 3 to 11. Twenty members of staff from various departments across the company spent a day carrying out an extensive range of tasks including building a decking platform for the pond area, mapping and landscaping a raised bed growing area as well as building the raised beds.
Jayne Talbot, Christeyns environmental, health & safety manager, said: “At Christeyns we are committed to making a difference in the local community and by doing so enriching the lives of our own employees. We were delighted to be able to support Newhall Primary with the building of their new outdoor nature area.”
