  • Need


    The organisation already uses a similar machine which has been in use daily for over 12 years proving invaluable in enabling our students to gain a wider range of gardening experiences, skills, self worth and recognition in the community.


    A new mower would not only save money but will generate income for us, with fewer bills due to repair / maintenance and in these challenging financial times it would be more fuel efficient.

  • Aims

    Aim 1

    To keep our students going out to work in the wider community and providing a valuable service.


    » A new mower will achieve this aim.

    What success will look like

    Success will be using the mower daily and being able to gain a wider range of contracts.

  • Impact


    This will help us keep our existing clients and to find new ones. The organisation prides itself in helping Students with learning difficulties work along side and with the wider population of the area.


    They will be no risks that we can foresee.


    Donors will be kept in touch via emails, newsletter, Facebook or Twitter. The project will hopefully be publicised via local paper.
