A secondary school near Warwick which caters for bullied children has had its gardens and recreation areas improved thanks to workers at Jaguar Land Rover.

The volunteers put their backs into at Northleigh House School in Hatton, including building a pond. Satyavrat Dahiya, of the vehicle dynamics team at JLR’s Gaydon design centre and the project manager, said: “This was a project we found ourselves. As well as helping deliver improvements for the school, the project has also strengthened team work and has given participants the chance to develop leadership and project management skills. We would like to thank TCL tools and Cavalier Fencing for their expertise and generosity - without them the day would not have been so successful.”

In 2013 JLR workers were involved in more than 63,000 hours of volunteering, including charity work, helping young people, regeneration and environmental improvement work.
