It has been a hive of activity the last few weeks getting ready, and then welcoming over 80 volunteers to Upton! A company initiative from NFU Mutual has seen over 80 volunteers from their Stratford office come and volunteer all over our property. 

The first day of volunteering - ready to start the day!

It was great to welcome them to Upton, see their enthusiasm and offer them something different to do. It was smiles all round at the end of the day with cup of tea, stories shared about their days in different departments and learning new things.
