Success for Growing Lives Open Afternoon

21 Aug 2015

On a sunny August afternoon we opened the doors to our Growing Lives project in Ilkeston, Erewash. The aim was to show supporters, people from local agencies, neighbours and potential clients what the project is all about.

Staff gave tours of the garden and workshops, and a display of before and after photos in the activity room showed just how far the project has come.

A group of current participants were working in the garden and taking part in their latest photography session. They chatted to visitors about their personal experiences and how the project has helped them to take positive steps towards healthier and more stable lives.

We want to say a big thank you to everyone who came to visit. It was a great opportunity to show supporters where their money has been spent, and to showcase the project to other agencies and potential clients.
