Volunteers Help Out at CASE Training Allotment

A team of NatWest bank staff helped out at a local charity’s allotment as part of a team away day.

The work was carried out at CASE Training’s award winning allotment by six members of NatWest’s commercial banking team based in Hull.

Founded in 1985 by parents and carers of people with a learning disability, CASE Training is a local charity working with local people and their families towards creating better life opportunities. The charity is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year.

The Hull and East Yorkshire Community Foundation worked with the Nat West team to help them find a worthwhile project. They arranged for the NatWest team to work at CASE Training’s allotment. The project saw the volunteers spend two days helping out. Their tasks included site clearance and composting, lining and filling a pond, painting fences and planters and planting of new plants.  The allotment is used by CASE Training on a variety skills-based projects for service users.

Steve Rusling Marketing Manager at CASE Training, said “We would like to not only thank NatWest but also the Hull and East Yorkshire Community Foundation who assisted in bringing us together. The volunteers were brilliant in helping and were vital in preparing the allotments for use by our service users.”

Linda Simpson, Senior Relationship Manager at NatWest, said: “We were delighted to spend two days helping out at CASE Training’s allotment. The volunteer days were a great way for us to come together and invest in the Hull community as a team which we are committed to doing as a bank.

“CASE Training is a fantastic organisation which provides much needed training and support to people with a learning disability as well as their families and carers through projects such as the allotment.”
