A team from Hanningfield recently visited our local children’s hospice, Little Havens, for a day of volunteering work. The group enjoyed gardening in the outdoor areas, greenhouse and vegetable patches. They planted flowers, weeded various areas and cleaned the paths after the winter months.
It was a fantastic experience and great to see the incredible support available to local children and their families. It was a privilege to play a small part in helping such a worthwhile cause. We would like to thank the kind staff who made the day possible.
A big ‘thank you’ goes to our fantastic Hanningfield Team who were keen to participate in this wonderful volunteering day. We are already looking forward to our next visit with more team members later in the year.
Josie, our Marketing Coordinator said “It was such a lovely day and we thoroughly enjoyed helping this charity in their mission to provide the best possible care for children and their families in the local area”.
