VOLUNTEERS from Cadbury spent a day renovating a community space in Longley Four Greens as part of a series of team challenges across the country for environmental charity Groundwork.
The charity aims to change places and change lives by improving the environment and helping communities take action create better neighbourhoods. Volunteers from the Cadbury site in Sheffield aimed to transform the community space by creating a new maze on the site.
After being split into two teams of Spots and Stripes, the volunteers planted a massive 1,000 crocus bulbs in the Cadbury purple colour and completed the foundations of a new maze on the site.
Gill Clarke, Community Champion at the Cadbury in Sheffield, said: “We’re always keen to offer to help out in our local community. Groundwork UK is such an influential charity that does brilliant work in communities across the UK and we were more than happy to help… although the weather could have been a bit better!”
Kate Beaumont from Groundwork Sheffield said: “Groundwork helps local people to get practically involved in making decisions and managing improvements in their neighbourhood as well as encourages people to make healthier and greener lifestyle choices. The Cadbury challenge was a great day and it was a pleasure to work with a group of people that really believe in making a difference. We were delighted with the dedication of the team and by the end of the challenge the grounds looked fantastic.”
