Over the last couple of years we’ve been able to renew and update a number of facilities at our stables thanks to the generosity of local businesses, funders and volunteers.
These refurbishments include demolishing an old leaking portacabin and installing a new log cabin in its place where children visiting us can eat, complete activities and have quiet time if needed. We also have installed a fully accessible disabled toilet facility and turned two disused areas into gardens –a beautiful sensory garden complete with reflection area and a small kitchen garden in raised planters.
None of these amazing facilities would have been possible without the support from;
Lloyds Bank – Managers and staff members from branches across the Midlands demolished the old portacabin, cleared the area, painted buildings and created the sensory garden. They also donated £3300 for materials.
Harlow’s Timber provided substantial discounts on materials
TW Wholesale Swadlincote has supplied all paint and equipment at significant discount.
We can’t wait to see all these facilities in full use during the coming months.
