Blandy and Blandy join Royal Berks Charity and get their hands dirty in wellbeing garden

Colleagues from Reading law firm Blandy & Blandy recently took time out of the office to spend an afternoon volunteering at Royal Berkshire Hospital’s new health and wellbeing garden.

Situated across the road from the main entrance, the garden is part of the Royal Berkshire NHS Foundation Trust’s health and wellbeing centre for staff, one of the first of its kind in the UK.

Kate Martin, Corporate Fundraising Manager at the Royal Berks Charity, said: “Having the team from Blandy & Blandy helping in the garden helps us to achieve more, making the space as interesting as possible for staff using the Wellbeing Centre now we’re moving into the warmer months.

“It gives our gardening team a chance to explain the importance of the space and how it impacts the Carbon Neutral plan of the Trust.”

The Royal Berks Charity has been one of Blandy & Blandy’s adopted charities for the past three years, with the firm recently making a donation as a thank you to head gardener Chris Cox and colleagues. It also supports Babies in Buscot Support (BIBS) at the hospital.

Blandy & Blandy Partner Claire Dyer added: “It was a genuine pleasure to spend some time helping out in this excellent new facility.

“Being in the garden and assisting Chris and his team progress their work enabled us to experience first-hand how this space is already benefitting staff at the Hospital. It has a real sense of calm which I am sure will be a benefit to all who use it.”
