Volunteers take up their post at VILD, Bishopbriggs, Glasgow

Seven employees, headed by John Griffen, Customer Manager of Water Response, spent a day at the Visual Impairment and Learning Disability Services (VILD) In Bishopbriggs.

The garden is currently receiving a make-over and so the organisation were glad to receive some help with painting the fence posts which will surround the garden as well as the wooden shed used for storage.

Johns team consisted of Paul Duggan, Scott Drysdale, Stephen Welsh,Vivienne Dell, Brian Brown and Daniel Sheerin.

Heather Muldoon from VILD said, "We had 7 volunteers come to our service on Friday 2nd March from Scottish Water.

Our service is for adults with learning disability and sight loss and we are presently revamping our garden to make sure our clients get the absolute best from it.

The volunteers worked along side the gardeners and were a fantastic credit to Scottish Water! They stopped only for a bowl of homemade soup midday. They put themselves at the disposal of the foreman of the gardeners and rolled up their sleeves and did what ever was asked of them.

Their support and interest in our work was fantastic, as the work they did allows us to save some money and lets us spend it back on the clients who come to our service. Can't express our thanks enough and I would absolutely recommend anyone else taking advantage of Scottish Water's volunteer scheme. A big thanks to Scottish Water and the team of volunteers"
