The Team were supported by a similar number of Work Experience students with Special Needs from Oaklands College. They were given a number a tasks to complete together including Pond Clearing, Hedge Cutting and Gardening. In the afternoon Paul Spink, a former Oaklands student from St Albans City Youth Disability Section, brought his Paralympic Torch for everyone to see.
Angie Lay from GlaxoSmithKline said “The day was a real pleasure, our OrangeDay team really enjoyed the activities (especially the pond clearing!) and the interaction with Oaklands College students added another dimension of fun to the occasion, they were a great bunch!”
Richard Bull the Highfield Park Manager was delighted with the results "I am so pleased that everyone took part, worked hard and for this opportunity to improve Highfield Park. GSK have made a difference! "
