Gar­den do­na­tion is just what the doc­tor or­dered!

House­builder will help bring colour to surgery with bulbs

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Helping Others -

Bloom­ing mar­vel­lous – that could be the re­ac­tion soon for vis­i­tors to Char­ing doc­tors’ surgery.

They are set to have a more colour­ful view thanks to a do­na­tion from lo­cal house­builder David Wil­son Homes to the cen­tre.

The com­pany has com­mit­ted to sus­tained sup­port of The Gar­den­ing Group at Char­ing Surgery since it started and its lat­est do­na­tion will be used to plant new bulbs and bring colour to the gar­den.

The Gar­den­ing Group is formed of pa­tients who have cho­sen to use gar­den­ing as a means of look­ing af­ter their own health and well­be­ing and who have been work­ing to­gether for the last two years to turn the land into a ther­a­peu­tic space for pa­tients to en­joy.

Al­ready the team has trans­formed two plots and the gar­den now has a seat­ing and meet­ing area, raised beds planted with fruit and veg­eta­bles, a wood­lands area and a rose walk.

Yvonne Fer­nando, chair of The Gar­den­ing Group at Char­ing Surgery said: “David Wil­son Homes is a long-stand­ing sup­porter of our work and we’re over the moon with this lat­est do­na­tion. We’ll have great fun plant­ing the bulbs and we know the flow­ers will bring colour and fun to ev­ery­one who vis­its the gar­den.”

Pam Rear­don, sales and mar­ket­ing di­rec­tor at David Wil­son Homes, said: “Our lat­est de­vel­op­ment in Char­ing is called Poppy Fields so it’s fit­ting that our do­na­tion will be used to bring flow­ers to lo­cal peo­ple.

“Giv­ing some­thing back to the en­vi­ron­ment, as well as the com­mu­ni­ties that we work in, is im­por­tant to us so we are de­lighted to be able to help.

“The gar­den­ing group is do­ing a fan­tas­tic job.”
