Wyevale’s World’s End has hosted a ceremony to celebrate the completion of major facility improvements at local mental health charity Lindengate. Lindengate offers specialised gardening activities to help those with mental health needs.
A Wyevale spokesperson said: “Since opening in November 2014, Lindengate’s Social and Therapeutic Horticulture site has made tremendous progress towards achieving their mission of helping people improve and maintain their health and wellbeing through a range of gardening and stimulating outdoor activities. As part of its continued commitment to supporting its local community, Wyevale Garden Centres has offered much needed support to the local mental health charity.
“The five acre site, adjacent to the World’s End Wyevale Garden Centre in Wendover, was in need of extensive renovation to improve facilities for the charity’s gardeners and enable the organisation to handle the demand in growth for its services in 2016.”
Amongst the attendees were vice-chairman and county councillor for Aston Clinton Division, Buckinghamshire County Council, Bill Chapple OBE. He said: “I’ve supported Lindengate from its inception, and have greatly enjoyed watching them grow from strength to strength. It is a remarkable charity.
“They are making a genuine impact on their gardeners’ lives and contributing to the county. I look forward to following their continuing progress with interest.”
The event was held on the 16th of March.
