“I really enjoyed our team challenge to develop the flower beds in Queen’s Park in Loughborough to help the town’s Britain in Bloom efforts. It was hard work but great to take part in a challenge that gives something back to the community”

“It was so rewarding to head up the team that decorated the Leonard Cheshire Home for the disabled in Sileby. We even decorated one of the Christmas trees with adapted laboratory items such as petri dishes, centrifuge tubes and inoculating loops”
