A team from Bath law firm Stone King has given a helping hand to Mentoring Plus by sprucing up its garden at the Riverside Youth Hub.
The charity supports children and young people across Bath & NE Somerset with mentors, with Stone King’s team delighted to volunteer.
Its team was made up of solicitor apprentices and trainees who spent an afternoon tidying up the area and adding new plants. The outdoor activity followed sessions at Stone King’s Bath headquarters to help the cohort continue their career development.
“The group has been keen to do a CSR activity for some time and we were really pleased to be able to help such a respected and worthwhile organisation,” said the firm’s knowledge and learning manager, Lisa Garbelotto.
“Lawyers are normally known for their legal knowledge so it’s great that we were also able to show off the team’s green fingers too; hopefully we’ll be able to make it an annual event.”
Becki Fox, Community Manager for Mentoring Plus, said: “It was wonderful to have a group of volunteers along from Stone King for the afternoon, they did an amazing job of tidying and brightening up our garden.
“Hosting volunteer days at our Youth Hub gives us the chance to connect with local businesses and for volunteers to give something back to their community at the same time.
“We wouldn’t be able to continue to provide our services without the support of our local community and brilliant local businesses like Stone King.”
