Gardening at Berrywood

Recently some members of the finance team headed to Berrywood, an assisted living facility in Hertfordshire, to support one of Camelot's charity partners, Watford Mencap. It was a great opportunity for various teams within the Finance department to get to know each other away from their desks. Joined by CFO Clare, they spent the day out in sunshine transforming the garden area and learning more about how this charity supports the local community. Aaron, Finance trainee shares his thoughts from the day: 


“The day started with the team being introduced to one of the residents at Berrywood, Stuart, before being handed a list of things to do in the garden. The team helped with weeding, clearing brambles, mowing the lawn and jet-washing the patio. We had one of the residents, Amanda, keeping an eye on how we were doing all day, making sure everything looked exactly how she wanted. All in all, the team had a great day working hard in the sun, and it was very heartwarming to see the delight on the residents’ faces once we finished.”
