Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

Thrive is a fantastic charity providing social and therapeutic horticultural programmes for people living with disabilities, long-term health conditions and mental health support needs. 

Pete and I are doing a space walk to try and raise funds for the charity so they can continue their fantastic work in offering programmes such as 'Pathways' for adults whose mental health means they need an environment designed to minimise stress and anxiety and ‘Life Changers’ -for people who have experienced a life changing condition.

The past few months have been hard for us all and lockdown has shown us how important our friends and family are. It has been incredibly isolating for lots of people, but being able to get out in our gardens or nature and go for a walk in the park has been a bit of a life saver. 

Lots of our events have been cancelled, so we wanted to do something a bit different and raise some much needed money at the same time. So we have chosen to walk to space....well not actually space, that's madness, but the equivalent in KMs - 100km to be precise and all in one whole day!! Well that's the plan anyway. And if that's not challenging enough, we thought we'd do it in the cold, damp wet month of January, when there's little light and also a good chance of freezing temperatures or even snow!

Your donation will support Thrive to continue to run these valuable programmes and also run training programmes for other practitioners to set up their own gardening programmes and projects; so do take your time to visit their website www.thrive.org.uk or just have a browse at the wonderful photos or read some of the client stories on my page here.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving - they'll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they'll send your money directly to the charity. So it's the most efficient way to donate - saving time and cutting costs for the charity.
