Children at charity run Langside School in Poole will now be able to enjoy their garden area even more this summer thanks to a team of 21 volunteers from LV= in Bournemouth.
The volunteers braved the wet weather and spent a whole day renovating the wildlife garden by reconditioning the rockery, repairing paving and replanting flowers and plants. They also created a brand new sensory garden area for the younger children, painted some woodwork and made a new balustrade for the decking area. LV= contributed £250 worth of materials for the project.
Samantha Preece, Corporate Social Responsibility Manager at LV=, said: “I’m delighted to see how hard the LV= team has worked to create the sensory garden at Langside School. I hope the children and staff will enjoy using the space for years to come.”
Sarah Harrison, Volunteer Recruitment Manager, said: “We can’t thank LV= volunteers enough for the fantastic work that was undertaken at Langside School. The area looks great and we want to say a massive thank you to every single volunteer for their efforts on the day.”
Langside is an independent, non-maintained, special day school run by Diverse Abilities, Dorset’s disability charity, and provides education to 28 children from the ages of two to 19 who have special educational needs and physical difficulties, often with complex medical conditions.
Diverse Abilities is looking to recruit volunteers to work on various projects in the future. Please contact Sarah Harrison on 01202 718266 or email email@example.com if you would like to get involved.
