Leeds volunteers get into the spirit in Haworth

The team during their volunteering day

A team from Leeds Building Society’s Bradford branch assisted Bronte Spirit by volunteering at the Haworth Old School Room.

They helped trustees with the general upkeep of the building, inside and outside, with jobs cleaning, painting and gardening.

The three colleagues, alongside their regional manager Chris Ord, took advantage of the Society’s volunteering scheme which allows all employees a day’s paid leave annually to help a good cause of their choice.

Averil Kenyon, chairman of The Bronte Spirit, said: “The Bronte Spirit would like to thank the Leeds Building Society volunteers for all their hard work and enthusiasm. Their weeding and sweeping work has made a huge difference to the look of the area – it now looks tidy, clean and cared for.

“The volunteers have started the process of painting the windows which look so much better and this progress will encourage others to finish the job.

“Their visit has also given a boost to the small group of trustees who are trying to save this building and often feel overwhelmed by the number of jobs that need to be done.”

Alison Barrans, customer service adviser in Bradford, said: “The outside area also needed tidying up, and the team did a fantastic job clearing weeds and overgrown plants to make the area look great.

“The charity was really grateful and happy with the work done – all who attended had a good day and commented on how we were achieving something worthwhile.”
