Benenden staff volunteer for major park revamp

13th October 2016

Staff from Benenden joined over 250 volunteers from other York businesses this week to take part in a three day transformation of a local park.

As part of our continuing work with volunteering organisation York Cares, Benenden’s team of 10 volunteers took part in a variety of activities including creating new pathways, cutting back overgrowth, replanting bulbs and creating a composting area to help re-invigorate the Hull Road Park as a hub for the community.

The work on 11th – 13th October 2016 has been taking place in collaboration with York Flourish who run a gardening project for people experiencing dementia, City of York Council, Tang Hall Community Centre and Urban Buzz in one of the City’s most economically deprived areas.

The aim is to enhance the park and create a space for social, recreational, health and well-being opportunities for communities in the area, particularly for families and older people.

Nicola Taylor, Communications Co-Ordinator at Benenden said; “The team really enjoyed the morning’s work, and all got stuck in, despite the weather! All of the volunteers over the whole three days have done a tremendous job, and the park looks amazing.

“We’re looking forward to being able to see the local community making use of the space. Helping to improve the lives of people with Dementia is an important part of the work we do and ties in with our values as a health and wellbeing organisation.”
