Our allotment has been looking much better recently and that is due to a great team of Santander employees who spent a day with us back in July helping to dig it over and prepare the beds.

Rachel and her team of colleagues from Santander Kingston and Santander Walton On Thames joined up with Jenny (RAK) for a day of hard but rewarding work.

Great to hear that the Santander team felt the day was a worthwhile joint venture.

Jonathan, Branch Director Kingston said, “Fantastic cause to be involved in and really shows how a little hard work and taking a few office people out of their natural environment can make a difference for those less fortunate” 

Carl ,Branch Director Walton-on–Thames said, “‘A feel good proud day’ -Great to be a part of the Santander Kingston Region team who with much hard work and spirit created a safe environment to help and support refugees trying to accustom to life in the UK. Thanks for the opportunity"

Here is what it looked like back in November 2015

And after some tender loving care from Rachel and her team from this is how it looked in the summer.

This really encouraged our clients to get involved and start growing vegetables, so thank you to all at Santander who helped to make this possible.
