Joanna Lumley visits The Yard to Spark Something Good

Joanna Lumley at The Yard, Edinburgh.



Thanks to the amazing ‘Spark Something Good’ campaign from M&S, thee Joanna Lumley and 10 volunteers graced The Yard on Tuesday March 8 with their presence and help, providing to be, well, …absolutely fabulous!

On Tuesday, staff and customers from local Marks & Spencer stores came to give us a helping hand as part of the M&S #SparkSomethingGood campaign. The Yard is one of 24 local organisations that have been part of this initiative aiming to support and encourage social good (through little acts of changing ones habits by donating time and energy to their local communities).

The team of 11 cleaned and topped up our sandpits, repainted our history wall leaves, did some planting and laid lots of new bark around the playground.

It’s fair to say that the hard work and smiles created a force of positivity at The Yard!


From everyone at The Yard, we would like to extend a massive THANK YOU to M&S, the volunteers and Joanna Lumley! We hope to see you all again!

Stay fabulous, darling!
