Seashell Trust Reading Garden gets a helping hand from Barclays’ staff

By on November 24, 2009

A large and enthusiastic team of volunteers from Barclays in Knutsford descended on campus at the Seashell Trust in Cheadle this month to refurbish the Reading Garden behind the Royal School Manchester.
The team split into groups of 12 and spent two days sweeping, pruning, weeding, planting and cleaning up the garden. They also donated cash to purchase new equipment including a new wooden bench.
Denese Paver, Volunteer Co-ordinator at the Seashell Trust said: “The team from Barclays worked really hard and got totally stuck into refurbishing our Reading Garden. They were absolutely fantastic and we are very grateful for all their hard work. We get considerable support from local companies such as Barclays in Knutsford and it makes a real difference to our students.”
