A team from London Colney Marks & Spencer have helped regenerate the garden at Open Door homeless shelter in St Albans.
A seven-strong group came to the charity to plant flowers, install a herb garden, and put in a jasmine climber.
Team member Tracey Dixon said: “I have worked with M&S for the past 28 years, and have to say I have never felt as proud of a company.”
Over the past few years, the team has raised £7,400 for the charity, and have estimated they will raise another £2,000 from the sale of 5p carrier bags.
Tracey said: “As a team we were delighted when our company then gave us £500 to invest in a project of our choice, and I couldn’t think of a more wonderful and life-changing charity than Open Door.
