A group of volunteers from Kettleby Foods (pictured top) recently took on a rather mucky challenge; cleaning out the River Soar in Abbey Park, Leicester!  As part of Kettleby’s work with the Leicestershire Cares charity, the team spent the afternoon on a boat, clearing debris and rubbish from the river, and sorting it for recycling.  Jodie Hancock, one of the Kettleby team said, “The day was good fun and we all felt like we were giving something back to the community.”

A team from Saladworks also recently spent a day transforming the outside areas of Belgrave Centre for Children, Young People and Families in Leicester.   Their DIY and gardening skills were put to the test as they tackled the children and youth areas, where they repainted a wall mural and picnic area, re-stained a wooden shed, weeded some planted areas, among other jobs.
