Celebrations have been underway in November 2019 around the Big Co-op Payout – Martineau Gardens has received just over £7,000 thanks to the support of Co-op members and staff at supporting stores. The funds received contribute towards delivering our therapeutic horticulture placements which includes vulnerable adults with mental health issues and learning disabilities.
Our thanks to Co-op members and our supporters who have chosen us, when shopping in our supporting stores.
The celebrations continued across the weekend at the four local shops who have been supporting Martineau Gardens in 2019. Kim (from Martineau Gardens), spent the afternoon at the Edgbaston store, with shop manager Josh Dredge and the Edgbaston Co-op team handing out flyers, selling Martineau Gardens plants and enjoying a slice of the celebratory cake. Meanwhile, in Moseley, former Director and supporter of the Gardens, Caroline Hutton, headed to the Moseley Co op to receive a cheque, about the good work that goes on here at the Gardens.
Co-op is also supporting Martineau Gardens through the continuation of the Local Community Fund into 2020 – look out for an update on how you can support us through this fund coming soon.
