The Volunteering team from PepsiCo enjoying a well deserved ice cream break

A Big thank you to the PepsiCo volunteering team!

We’d like to say a huge thank you to the team from PepsiCo Reading who kindly gave up their afternoon to join us today and offer some very welcome support in our garden!

Everyone worked incredibly hard despite the warm weather, and we achieved so much in such a short space of time! The garden is now looking beautiful and the irrigation system is in place which will help us in the warm weather in the coming months, we couldn’t be more grateful. It means our horticultural therapy team can focus their time and efforts on the important mental health and wellbeing work with our beneficiaries.

It was also wonderful to hear how relaxing and positive all the volunteers found the experience! A big thank you again to everyone and we hope you enjoyed those well-deserved ice creams!

If you or anyone you know would like to volunteer for GHTV, whether to carry out general garden maintenance or a specific garden project, as PepsiCo did, please do get in touch – working in our gardens can be a great opportunity for team building, learning and boosting wellbeing for all involved.
