Staff from a Wisbech company got their hands dirty after answering a call for help from a preschool.
Murrow Preschool, on Murrow Bank, was looking to create a special herb garden for its pupils to help with their sensory experiences.
Hughes Electrical, who have a shop on the Market Place in Wisbech, stepped in and provided all the necessary plants, pots, compost and some labour too.
Tom Hunn, from Hughes, who helped out on the day, said: “The first thing we had to do was clear an area of weeds and debris and because of all the great weather we have been having recently the ground was very, very hard and difficult to work, but we did it.
“We used a variety of herbs, all different shapes, colours, sizes and smells which the preschool will now be able to use to teach its pupils not only about how plants grow but also enable them to both touch and smell.
