STAFF at the Taunton offices of a law firm left work for the morning on Wednesday (November 17) to help out at a local charity.

Around 20 employees from Clarke Willmott spent a few hours getting stuck in at homeless charity Open Door.

They carried out tasks such as decorating the premises in Mary Street, sorting donations, gardening at the organisation's allotment, DIY jobs and admin work.

As well offering valued assistance, they also used the session as a team building exercise.
