Green fingered Arena volunteers help out at Cockburn School allotments

Green fingered Arena volunteers help out at Cockburn School allotments

The Cockburn School allotment is a social enterprise project aimed at encouraging students to learn gardening skills and take ownership of a special initiative. The space is also home to an eco-building constructed using sustainable materials that  will be used for teaching and selling produce from the fruit and vegetable beds in the allotment.

The July CSR day followed an earlier event at the site when volunteers dug drainage ditches. The allotment and eco-building are clearly valued by the school and students so Arena was happy to help towards efforts to get the garden looking spic and span in preparation for a visit from the Leeds in Bloom judges. The day was organised in collaboration with Leeds Ahead.

Gill Newsome of Cockburn School supervised the volunteers and commented; "they worked really hard and independently, we could not have done it without them. The whole area looks vastly improved and the support Arena have given us with the allotment has been excellent."

Arena staff are encouraged to volunteer two annual CSR days to help with community and charity projects.
