G&T helps restore primary school prayer garden

Last week G&T employees helped restore a neglected prayer garden at St Joseph’s Primary School in Hunslet.

As part of Gardiner & Theobald’s ongoing social impact programme a team of six volunteers from the Leeds office went down to St Joseph’s to tidy up the prayer garden so overgrown it was no longer accessible. The team then helped the Year 3 & 4 students replant flower beds, creating a vibrant and welcoming outdoor learning space.

Many of the pupils don’t have regular access to outdoor space at home, so this gave them the opportunity to learn about different gardening techniques, plants and flowers.

G&T Partner, Simon Worden, took part in the event and commented:

“It was brilliant to spend some time with the children of St Joseph’s. They are a credit to their teachers and worked together to bring the gardens back to life.”

Parents, teachers and pupils were all thrilled with the results, creating a garden that everyone can enjoy.

Acting Deputy Headteacher, Ciara Munnelly, said:

“The children had a wonderful time meeting everyone and helping to give our garden a new lease of life.”

Ethical Thinking is one of G&T’s core business values. Each year the firm support charitable causes through our social impact programme giving back to the communities we help to build.
