Staff from the UK’s leading fleet management specialist Lex Autolease joined Rennie Grove Hospice Care’s retail team last month as part of the national Give & Gain initiative.

Fourteen of the firm’s staff volunteered in three of Rennie Grove’s charity shops, with four joining the team at the charity’s discount store in The Marlowes, Hemel Hempstead.

Claire Lambert, who co-ordinated the volunteers and took part herself, said: “We had a fantastic time and really enjoyed ourselves. We were allowed to get stuck in and we did loads. The shop manager gave us a real insight into the charity, how it was set up, what the nurses do and how £20 can fund one hour of nursing care.

“It was a real eye opener for us and made us all think more about what we would donate in future. My colleagues and I would definitely like to take part again next year.”
