BAE Apprentices get green fingered for hospice
A group of BAE Systems Engineering apprentices have been lending a hand in the grounds of St Catherine’s Hospice after choosing the charity for their community project.
The 30 first-year students volunteered over three days to paint the staff car park fence, trim hedges and help repair paths around St Catherine’s Park.
Team leader Aaron Rowbotham and instructor James Robinson offered to help out after James saw first-hand the good work done at the Lostock Hall hospice. His sister Emma Grandison was cared for at St Catherine’s in February last year.
He said: “When my sister stayed in the hospice I saw the work that the charity does, and what a good cause it is, so I wanted to do something to support the hospice.”
