The team are usually found at the head office of Punch Taverns, running pubs across the country.

However, this morning they'll be rolling up their sleeves at St. Gile's Hospice in Lichfield creating a new garden for patients and carers.

The charitable gesture is also being funded by the pub group, who have joined a campaign to "Give Away Your Leap Day" in doing something to help others.

The initiative was launched by a Lichfield based charity shopping site, and they've succeeded in engaging companies and individuals across country.

They're still on the hunt for more volunteers and anyone wishing to get involved can find a list of charitable ventures to join on the website www.leapday.co.uk.
