Flower Power: Support the Gardening for Disabled Trust March 19, 2018 14:26
This year marks the 50th Anniversary of the Gardening for Disabled Trust. Celebrating in style, this fantastic charity has headed back it's swinging sixties roots to create an exciting fundraising challenge for this summer.
Alan Titchmarsh, President of the Trust, will share his ten top gardening tips for flower power success to everyone who makes a £10.00 donation. Between you and I, I'm also hoping to see Alan give us a twirl as 'Austen Powers' this summer! Now come on, that's got to be worth an extra fiver?!
Each year, the Gardening for Disabled Trust, a small, Kent based charity, works nationwide, helping thousands of people to enjoy gardening, defying physical disabilities and mental health issues.
The healing effects of gardening are becoming increasingly researched and well known. By supporting the Gardening for Disabled Trust, and helping them to reach their target of £5000, you will directly help to improve access to the garden for those that need it most. Every single penny the charity receives goes towards items such as raised beds; making gardens/level accessible with ramps/adaptations; adding handrails, as well as shrubs/seeds/bulbs tools or all kinds of other garden requirements. £5000 equates to 100 raised planter beds or 50 garden access ramps.
