Special Vehicle Operations Marketing, Sales and Services (MS&S) team got green fingers as they built 10 new planters for Birmingham charity Help Harry Help Others centre in Kitt’s Green, Birmingham.
The team of 30 colleagues also filled each vegetable planting box with soil ready for the centre to use and support the charity’s nutrition goal to grow vegetables to promote healthy eating.
Georgie Moseley, Founder of Help Harry Help Others, said: "Thank you to all the amazing people from Special Vehicle Operations who helped make our Care And Nutrition into CANcer initiative a reality.
“The ten planters will have a huge ongoing impact on our cancer community as we grow vegetables to support the work we do to educate people in all areas of nutrition. I cannot thank you enough for your efforts and I hope we can work together in the future."
The Birmingham charity offers a variety of services from financial advice to emotional support for cancer patients. It all started thanks to an 11-year-old boy who sold bracelets to support other sufferers like him.
Unfortunately, Harry was battling an inoperable brain tumour and sadly died in October 2011. In his honour, his mother Georgie Moseley continued the charity Harry started to support other families affected by cancer.
The charity has raised over £965,000 with local fundraising events since 2009. Recently they have moved into a new building, and the Special Vehicles Operations MS&S team saw an opportunity to help the charity achieve some of its ambitions.
