Work to transform an area of land at the Tommy’s Field allotment site in Morpeth has been carried out by staff at the Morpeth branch of Marks & Spencer (M&S).
Stores across the North East were given the task of finding a project local to them that would generate a long lasting benefit to the community under the M&S country-wide Spark Something Good initiative.
They were each allocated £500 and the team at Morpeth located a need for improvements at one of the allotments within Tommy’s Field.
This renovation would see raised beds being constructed, giving access to those with disabilities, and a bench installed as a resting area.
Nine members of staff from M&S Morpeth gave up their time over two days to take to the field.
They worked relentlessly despite heavy rain on both days and managed to achieve an outstanding transformation.
