A GROUP of accountants went back to school this week – but instead of being in the classroom they were getting busy in the playground.

Staff at KPMG went along to the Thomas Wolsey school in Ipswich as part of the company's community programme.

The 55 number crunchers from offices in Ipswich and Cambridge spent the day clearing the site of overgrown plants and trees and laying a new paved circuit for children to drive around on their toys.

Climbing frames, fences and playhouses were all given a fresh lick of paint and the staff even painted a mural of an underwater kingdom for the children on Wednesday.

"They worked extremely hard to get the playground looking amazing."

The team provided £500 towards materials for the project and many of the staff provided their own tools.

Stephanie Beavis, audit director for KPMG said: "The whole team worked so hard on this project and we wanted to do something really special for the pupils of Thomas Wolsey School.

"We felt that it was a good way to give something back to our community whilst at the same time providing an excellent team building event which was both a fun and rewarding day away from the office."
