Kind-hearted staff at a building society gave a mental health charity a makeover as part of their anniversary celebrations.

Staff at Buckinghamshire Building Society donated more than 110 hours last month to transform the hallway, kitchen and bathroom areas of Bucks Mind, based at Sun House in Chesham.

Eli Merchant, from Bucks Mind, said: “When the society approached us we were delighted to accept their offer of some decorating.

“Our funds are used to provide our mental health services, so it is wonderful to have our building spruced up free of charge.

“We are very grateful to the volunteers from Buckinghamshire Building Society for giving their time and energy to help provide a better environment for our service users and staff.”

Jill Carpenter, marketing manager at Buckinghamshire Building Society said: “To celebrate our anniversary we decided to offer 110 hours of volunteering to the community.

“This was a big task and many of our staff pitched in to help and we thoroughly enjoyed it.”
