BIG-hearted nuclear employees sacrificed their office jobs for two days of garden maintenance, to help their site’s chosen charities.

Employees of Advance Uranium Asset Management (AUAM), who are based on Westinghouse’s Springfields site, in Salwick, offered to undertake their annual Safety Workshop at hospices Brian House and Derian House, in Bispham and Chorley.

The staff completed a day’s gardening and general maintenance at both hospices, which included activities such as cutting tree branches, clearing garden waste and removing rubbish from around the hospices’ grounds.

Brian House head gardener Gary Prestwich was delighted with the work that the team completed.

He said: “I’ve never seen such a change in one day. I’ve been trying to imagine all week what it would look like and it’s as good as I could have imagined.”

Nicola Bond, office manager at AUAM, said: “The group felt that they achieved what they set out to do and are looking forward to returning in the future.”
