“I always ask myself – what do I do for others? If I have one hand for helping myself why not use the other for helping others.”
Young Bristol would like to say a massive thank you to corporate partner Balfour Beatty, for volunteering their time at The Grove @ Bedminster Down this summer!
Teams of volunteers have been busy transforming the South Bristol community venues garden, turning the space into a welcoming wellbeing garden. Staff members supported with painting, clearing and planting new flowers and plants. Balfour Beatty’s subcontractor, Glendale Services, kindly supported the developments by digging up and levelling the outdoor space with wood chippings to make a safer and more accessible area, as well as reseeding a green space where young people can take part in lawn games and outdoor creative projects.
“For me personally being involved in any type of volunteering is an honour. Young Bristol is HCP’s (Hinkley Connection Project’s) chosen charity. There is still more work to come but what a joy in knowing the bright smiles on the kids’ faces who’ll now be able to enjoy the community garden at The Grove,” says Gabriele Litvinaityte, Project Communications Manager – OHL.
Thank you Balfour Beatty for your dedication and continued support of our community spaces.
