Thank-you to generous gardener for flower donation
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.
