Help us bring colour into the lives of older people
The vision for this project is to adapt and expand our gardening service in an extra special way to show that we care about our older friends. Imagine how simply gifting a small bunch of flowers to an older person could make them feel appreciated or delivering a plant for their garden could show them that they are valued.  
Around this time is when our gardening service for older people springs into action and our team of volunteer gardeners carry out light gardening and general maintenance.
 
As a result of the lockdown most older people have been unable to do any kind of shopping, including buying plants and flowers to spruce up their gardens. 
 
This year our aim is to adapt our service for those who are shielding, self-isolating or worried about going out, and bring a bit of colour back into their lives by delivering bedding plants to them. Our volunteer gardeners will deliver these and can help with planting to ensure our older friends’ gardens aren’t left untended.
The crowdfunding appeal is an all or nothing fundraising appeal. So we need all the help we can get to reach our target of £5000!
 
Why we need your support
 
While we have had to cancel our planned community fundraising events which raise vital funds to facilitate our services your support will enable us to make up this shortfall in order to sustain our service provision. 
 
The money raised will contribute to the purchase of plants and flowers as well as staffing costs and volunteer expenses. Crucially the funding will allow us to show our older friends that the local community hasn't forgotten them. 
 
A small contribution from you will help deliver smiles to our community of vulnerable older people who deserve to feel valued.
