Our Garden

       

 

Our garden had a glorious makeover in the summer of 2018 and is now a real gem! This beautiful open space offers a great combination of both sun traps and shade so clients can be guaranteed comfort, whatever their preference.

 

The area offers comfortable, supportive seating (including a brand new bench and 6-seater patio set with parasol), beautiful plant holders (handmade by our clients in our wood workshop) and bird boxes (many of which are inhabited, and again, handmade by our clients).

 

 

There are also attractive plants and flowers, herbs for our kitchen and seasonal vegetables, all of which are cared for by our amazing clients. In the summer, we enjoy 'al fresco' coffees and lunches together. 

 

We're very proud of our garden and the enjoyment it very clearly generates, whether that may be from practical gardening tasks or simply relaxing with a cup of tea.

An INCREDIBLE London Marathon 2019!

Team HEN were nothing short of phenomenal in this year's Virgin London Marathon! 

 

Each and every runner did an amazing job for us, battling on through shin splints, aches, pains and even lost toenails (OW!) to finish those 26.2 miles for us. We were bowled over by the efforts everyone went to, not only with the intensity of the physical training, but also their creative and imaginative ideas for fundraising, all on top of juggling work and family commitments. Each of them needs a superhero cape! 

 

So far we have raised over £45,000 and we're still counting! It's just amazing, and we will be able to continue enriching and supporting the lives of those managing ABI with this superb amount of money raised.

 

We will shortly be posting some great photos from this special event so watch this space! If you're interested in running for us next year - get in touch!
