Friend In Need - Gardening for Elders

Our friends over at Friend In Need are looking out for green thumbs to contribute towards a gardening project. They are aiming to recruit volunteers to help maintain the gardens of the elderly living within the borough.

"We recently received many desperate calls for help since the council stopped providing free gardening to the elderly who live in social housing/private homes and cannot afford private gardening.  The difficulty is compounded by the rapidly diminishing funding for the elderly." - Jesse

The importance of having a space to be around nature is often underestimated. Hanging out in the garden is a great way to keep healthy and maintain peace of mind.

To register as a volunteer or to find out more please email Jesse Tan on 020 8449 8225 ext 211
