Memorial Garden created by volunteers at Mountains Animal Rescue Centre

A team of seven spent a day at Mountains Animal Rescue Centre in Forfar and created a Memorial garden for the Centre which included building a fence and creating a patio area for picnic tables.

The team consisted of Rob Mustard, George Ellen, Ian Burnett, Lynda Scott, Raymond O'Brien, Sheila Campbell-Lloyd, Chris Humphrys and Steven Fraser.

Thanking the Scottish Water volunteers for their efforts, David Udale of the Sanctuary said "What a great bunch of guys and gals who turned up and how hard they worked! They represented Scottish Water better than you would have hoped and we were well impressed with their enthusiasm, their team work, their dedication, and their ability to just get on with and then complete the tasks set!

The wee recreational area that they worked on looks better than when we first thought of and imagined this so we're extremely pleased with the efforts of their hard work. They all seemed to know each other so the camaraderie between them was good to see".

Fiona Burley, Scottish Water's volunteering programme co-ordinator, said: "We are delighted to have been able to work with the Mountain Animal Sanctuary and help to create a memorial garden in the paddock area and provide volunteers to carry out these very worthwhile tasks.

"Scottish Water's volunteering programme was launched in spring last year and has already been very successful. There is a huge amount of passion within the business for volunteering and it's a great way for employees to get involved in their local communities."
