Volunteers from GlaxoSmithKline put in a hard days work at West Middlesex Hospital to revamp an overgrown garden in the maternity centre.
The courtyard garden had been left to become neglected for some time and 35 volunteers from the Brentford based pharmaceutical giant decided to give it a bit of TLC to turn it into an oasis of calm.
The project was carried out as part of GSK's Orange Day initiative, which sees each GSK employee give up one working day a year to volunteer with a local community project.
Howard Dawson, Sales Channel Controller for GSK, and organiser of the volunteer team said: “It was fantastic for us to get out of the office and to see people who normally spend their day pushing round a mouse, mixing concrete or handling a shovel.
“The finished garden really exceeded our expectations."
The team enlisted help from a professional gardener to plan the garden and funded it by raising £2,700.
