A team of Levy Restaurants UK volunteers, based at Cardiff City Stadium, showcased their green fingers this spring, working with children from Albany Road Primary School to give a much needed makeover to their outside garden area.

Business in the Community’s ‘Give and Gain Day’ initiative, saw the volunteers partner with pupils to encourage them to get gardening, study nature in a safe environment and understand the wider benefits associated with the great outdoors.

Albany Road Primary School, situated on a busy main road in central Cardiff, is attended by almost 500 pupils whose diverse backgrounds mean that 42 different languages are spoken on any given day. The school actively encourages students to participate in outdoor learning in order to develop their life skills, including team building and problem solving – they hope their new look garden will encourage and enhance this for their pupils.

Jane Byrd, catering general manager at Cardiff City Football Club said: “People are at the heart of everything we do, so it’s great to be able to engage with local young people in such a positive and productive way. The school garden was in need of some care after the winter months and we are pleased to play our part in brightening up the outdoor spaces to give pupils, teachers and parents a bright and cheery welcome to the school.”
