Report by David Mackie of The Press.
The three day volunteering project, York Cares Big Community Challenge, came to an end with a green-fingered theme.
The challenge involved people from local businesses coming together to help make a difference to the local area.
Helen Illman, programme coordinator at York Cares, thanked and praised the helpers for all their support.
“Come rain or shine they’ve come been willing to get stuck into any job and get their hands dirty for good causes,” she said.
“It’s a great reflection of York employers that 150 staff can be released to help in their local communities and hopefully the staff have enjoyed their time out of the office, tackling something different as a team.”
