Thank-you to gen­er­ous gar­dener for flower do­na­tion

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Uk&world Update -

A CITY-BASED char­ity has thanked a kind-hearted land­scape gar­dener for do­nat­ing a host of beau­ti­ful blooms.

Deaf­blind UK was de­lighted when Alastair Peat, from Al­fresco Land­scap­ing, Help­ston, do­nated the plants to Rain­bow Court.

Some 17 deaf­blind ten­ants live at the shel­tered hous­ing site in Pas­ton Rid­ings, Peter­bor­ough and sev­eral of them en­joy work­ing to keep the gar­den as tidy and man­aged as pos­si­ble. But they desperately needed more plants to fill the raised beds and Mr Peat came to their res­cue and do­nated some fra­grant plants for their gar­den.

A spokes­woman said: “For deaf­blind peo­ple, sen­sory plants such as herbs, within the raised beds, are per­fect and now fully en­joyed by ev­ery­one in this lovely warm weather.”

The char­ity aims to pro­vide sup­port to deaf­blind peo­ple in their own homes, en­abling them to live as in­de­pen­dently as pos­si­ble, as part of their own com­mu­nity. They pro­vide home­care as­sis­tance, com­mu­ni­ca­tor guides, rehabilitation and in­ter­preter sup­port by es­tab­lish­ing a net­work of In­de­pen­dent Liv­ing Teams (ILTs) across the coun­try thereby mak­ing our ser­vices ac­ces­si­ble to more deaf­blind peo­ple, their fam­i­lies and car­ers.
