Volunteering alongside The Guardian
Kevin, along with volunteers from the Guardian, Bemerton residents and Central St Martin’s University students, transformed the corner of Copenhagen Street and Caledonian Road.
The theme of the day was art and well-being which involved painting and gardening. Volunteers took part in rejuvenating existing paint work on art walls, as well as gardening activities which involved planting a new hedge, and three beds, filling them with lovely flowers donated from the Chelsea Flower Show.
“I helped with painting as well as putting sleepers down for a garden feature.
The Guardian organised a brilliant event, it was also nice to speak to the local residents we helped last year. Their acknowledgement and smiles made it a very rewarding day."

All volunteers were later treated to a residential BBQ in the sun.
