Steve's new van fund
Steve together with his 2 volunteers (Les and Colin) have maintained 80 client’s gardens, 48 on a 3-4 week rotation. Our clients are the elderly and those who have a disability, living in the Broxtowe area.
Steve uses his van every day and is a vital part of his work. It has broken and the elderly folk of Broxtowe depend on him to maintain their gardens giving them increased mental well being and helping them physical to get out and enjoy their gardens.
All together 338 garden jobs have been completed this year. Jobs vary from mowing grass, weeding and digging to pruning/trimming hedges and shrubs. The garden tidy jobs which usually involve cutting back the full extent of the greenery, and then removal of this to the recycling centre, making it manageable and easier for the client to enjoy their garden.
When the weather is not suitable for gardening Steve also does odd, jobs and decorating. This year he has completed 40 jobs ranging from fitting key safes, adding additional security to a client’s house and general household repairs. He has completed 14 decorating jobs (ranging from 1-3 days), 20 tip runs and 15 assessments (gardening and decorating).
Please help Steve and his team get a new van.
