Workers from Marks and Spencer in Pudsey are going green-fingered to improve a sensory garden and playground.

The Owlcotes Centre team will be joining 5,000 of their colleagues across the UK and taking part in a community volunteering drive this week.

The team of 20 will be working with playworkers at The Big Swing Adventure Playground to reinvigorate the playground to make it a safe and fun play space for children ahead of the summer holidays.

The Pudsey M&S store team will be working in five teams of four to help playworkers at the site in Eccleshill.

They will be making structures suitable for play, clearing the existing playground space to give it a new lease of life, and updating the playground’s sensory garden for disabled children.

Store manager Brian Collin said:

“We’re really excited to be coming together to lend a hand to The Big Swing Adventure Playground. Volunteering makes a profound difference to communities, and we believe that lots of small actions from lots of people can have a lasting impact on society and help improve lives.”
