Families staying at the Ronald McDonald House in Birmingham will now be able to enjoy some outside space thanks to a group of green-fingered HSBC employees.

Members of HSBC’s Birmingham-based franchise unit battled freezing winter weather conditions as they picked up their trowels, spades and screwdrivers to transform two balconies at the charity’s Birmingham house into welcoming and comfortable outside spaces.

The 10 employees volunteered their time to complete the project to help the charity which looks after seriously ill children.
