Drive DeVilbiss Healthcare’s sales team recently embarked on another volunteering day in the local community working alongside The Bradford Volunteering Group.

The team undertook three projects at Windhill Community Centre in Shipley, West Yorkshire.

The centre caters for all age groups from babies and under-fives, to community groups and care home residents.

The centre is an important lifeline for learning, networking, keeping fit, volunteering and bringing people together.

The team split into three groups to decorate, garden and prepare afternoon tea.

The decorators freshened up the crèche facilities, transforming the room into a fresh, airy and clean space for children to enjoy.

The gardeners created raised beds for the centre to grow their own vegetables and herbs. They also planted flowers and shrubs and made a ‘wishing well’.

Children were presented with some gardening goodies so they could plant their own seeds and watch them grow.

The cooks prepared an intergenerational tea party for the children and residents of the local care home.

Sandy Doherty of Great British Bake Off fame judged the ‘sweet treats’ in the cake competition.

A spokesperson from Drive said: “It’s been absolutely brilliant, we are really proud to have helped out such a great place that’s a real heart of the community. At DDH we are really passionate about helping people.”
