No Walls Gardens helping vulnerable people in our local area
Our Community Champion Christine has been helping at tree planting event organised by No Walls Gardens, a not-for-profit community organisation. No Walls Gardens teaches gardening and landscaping skills to volunteers who include ex-offenders, disabled persons, long-term unemployed and recovering addicts of all ages. The projects are designed to help them engage with their local community, give them valuable life and work skills and help them avoid re-offending or relapsing by encouraging them to be part of something bigger. Christine said: "Today was a special event where the were planting trees and had a local singer performing. The volunteers here really provide a worthwhile service to our community."
