A school’s eco-garden was maintained by staff from a UK branch of an American software firm on Friday.
The company Rapid7, based in Boston, Massachusetts, runs a ‘Give Back Day’ in which employees help on a community project.
This year, they tidied an eco-garden at Lent Rise School, in Coulson Way, using power tools donated by Dewalt in Bath Road.
Office manager Maria Holloway said: “Big, big thanks for those businesses as we do not pay for those items. It’s part of the challenge for us a company and for me as the person running the project to see what our local businesses will spare to help out a local school. The response has been brilliant.”
