Everyone at P+HS Architects gets a free 'Volunteer Day' for giving back to our communities in some way. People have volunteered for all sorts of causes from helping out at food banks and animal welfare charities, to organising collections of Christmas gifts for communities in need.
Recently a team from our Leeds studio gave a helping hand to Yorkshire Ambulance Service NHS Trust with some hands on digging and planting to enhance wildlife habitats at the organisation's York site.
Organised by Callumn Beattie and Laura Bell in conjunction with Yorkshire Ambulance Service's Environmental & Sustainability Manager, Alexis Percival, the aim of the work was to improve the area and particularly to create a much needed habitat for the endangered Tansy Beetle.
Supporting the NHS's Net-Zero Carbon aims the team planted 450 trees and various plants, helped towards establishing a thriving hedgerow, and dug a pond!
Well done to the team involved Callumn, Laura, Ben, Dan, Elliot, Lukasz, and Stefan! Through this collaborative initiative, we have not only created a lasting impact on the local environment but also strengthened the bonds between the practice and the community we serve.
