Greggs volunteers dig garden for Action for Kids
Green-fingered disabled youngsters will be able to enjoy the outdoors after they and a team of volunteers brought a new garden into full bloom.
Six managers from Greggs bakery in Enfield gave up their time on Friday September 27 to help the users of Action For Kids, a disabilities charity in Tottenham Lane, Hornsey.
They worked to make sure those suffering with disabilities can reap the rewards of growing vegetables and playing outside at the YMCA Haringey Club in Tottenham Lane.
Annalie, 21, who suffers from a learning disability, loved getting busy in the garden and said: “It was fun, I enjoyed helping out and was really nice that the volunteers helped us too.
“I can’t wait to grow some carrots and tomatoes.”
The charity’s corporate manager, Lyn Prodger, said she could not thank Greggs enough for their help.
She said: “We can’t believe how much the team from Greggs achieved in one day – the ground work is all now complete, raised beds built and the beginnings of a wide path are underway.
“This will all result in a completely accessible garden where everyone here can grow their own produce."
Greggs volunteer Janice Moy said: “It was a really fun day and we all enjoyed working alongside the young people, sharing in their enthusiasm and are looking forward to continuing our partnership with this worthwhile cause.”
