Staff from Lloyds Bank in King’s Lynn made a big difference to the lives of residents at a Lynn home.

A group of employees rolled up their sleeves and helped to transform a garden area at Briar House residential home, in Losinga Drive on Friday.

The garden will be used by residents with intensive needs and home manager, Nadine Vail, said the staff worked hard.

Their efforts were part of the bank’s Make a Difference Day.

Ms Vail said: “They donated their time for a whole day and it was very much appreciated.

“They worked really hard and they really did make a difference.”

The bank workers painted fencing and garden furniture and did lots of planting.

While the staff were hard at work, the residents sat outside and made flower pot holders and wind chimes.

Ms Vail praised the home’s activities co-ordinators, particularly Sylvia Leggett, who led the garden project.

“It was a superb day all round,” said Ms Vail, who added the home now has three gardens which have now been transformed.

Work on the front garden continued this week and the aim was to get it finished in time for a national care homes open day event today.

The home will open its doors to the public from 10am to 4pm and there will be cream teas, entertainment and music.
