A Helping Hand from JLR

On Saturday 21st February a team of enthusiastic and energetic volunteers from Jaguar Land Rover came to the Millpool, complete with a generous donation of some great tools and equipment, to carry out a number of maintenance tasks for us. The team were joined by other volunteers and parents from 1st Solihull Scout Group, including an electrician and a team who worked on the roof.

The teams were kept fuelled up during the day with bacon and sausage sandwiches, tea and coffee, and plenty of fresh air. Everyone worked really hard, made great progress and achieved all the planned tasks and more.

Many thanks to Keith Bonser, his JLR colleagues and the 1st Solihull volunteers for all their hard work and commitment. Based on this success we’re hoping to arrange more of these days in the future.
