New wheels for gar­den vol­un­teers

Kent Messenger Maidstone - - NEWS -

A vol­un­teer­ing ser­vice which tack­les out-of-con­trol gar­dens and DIY tasks in Maid­stone has been given a new van thanks to gen­er­ous do­na­tions.

Get In­volved is run by In­volve Kent, a char­ity link­ing mem­bers with good causes.

Thanks to funds do­nated by The Cloth­work­ers Foun­da­tion, The Trust­house Char­i­ta­ble Foun­da­tion, The Beatrice Laing Trust and Haynes of Maid­stone, the group can now help even more peo­ple.

Ka­t­rina Gadsby, well­be­ing project leader, said: “It is great to have the new van for the Get In­volved project which al­lows our vol­un­teers to give back to the com­mu­nity and build so­cial con­nec­tions while learn­ing new skills and in­creas­ing their con­fi­dence.”

The project runs Mon­day– Fri­day and vol­un­teers can ded­i­cate as much time as they feel com­fort­able with.

If you are in­ter­ested in hear­ing more about the gardening and DIY ser­vice, call In­volve Kent on 01622 677337.
