Paymentshield gets green fingered at Southport Botanic Gardens

A team from Paymentshield; the Southport based provider of insurance to mortgage intermediaries; has sponsored a bay in the aviary of the Southport Botanic Gardens, as well as a rose garden at its Churchtown site. The £1,000 in sponsorship will allow the Botanic Gardens' volunteers to manage the site, as well as pay for the upkeep of the displays and rose garden.

The team; led by Steve Wood, CEO; spent time planting geraniums and petunias in the main bay, which will be on display until October 2016. The rose garden will be a permanent feature of the Botanic Gardens and Paymentshield has also sponsored a 2nd bay, due to bloom in spring 2017. Paymentshield staff will also be regularly returning the site to weed, water and replant its displays.  Steve Wood said:- "It's been a pleasure to lead the team in getting their hands and knees dirty to really make a difference to our local area. As a Southport business, we take pride in supporting the local community. Seeing the senior management team with trowels and seeds in hand was certainly a different experience to our day-to-day business and it was really great to see them all muck in!"

The Southport Botanic Gardens, based in Churchtown, 1st opened in 1875 and has a thriving membership of 70 volunteers, all of whom work on maintaining the site and ensuring it has a fruitful future. It achieved charity status in 2015, following budget cuts by Sefton Council.  David Cobham, lead volunteer at Southport Botanic Gardens, said:- "We'd like to offer huge thanks to Paymentshield for agreeing to sponsor the flower beds in the aviary area, and to the staff for helping with the planting; they did a great job. We hope they will all come back to visit with their families later to see the Botanic Gardens in all its splendour thanks to their generosity."

Earlier this year, Paymentshield launched a volunteering programme which allows staff to spend 2 working days giving back to the local community as part of its ongoing corporate social responsibility initiative.
