We’ve had some great news, we’ve been awarded funding via LoveBrum to run our Wellbeing Martineau Mondays again in 2023 – thank you for voting for us! Watch our social media channels and our website for more news soon. What a great start to 2023#therapeutic#communitygardens#wellbeing
We were one of three charities nominated for LoveBrum’s December causes. Here’s Jenni Fryer (Martineau Gardens CEO) explaining the benefits of the £2,000 funding, if successful in this, the people’s vote.
For some time, we have been offering free weekly social activities to older adults – there’s been four regular sessions in tai chi, yoga, mindfulness class and creativity. The sessions have been well attended, whatever the weather, with keen participants even turning up for outdoor tai chi in frost and drizzle. The crafts are wide ranging from stone painting and crochet to dorodango (japanese mud ball creation). Provided free of charge to ensure cost was not a barrier to participation, these have become a wonderful start to Mondays. The funding would allow us to continue to provide this over the darker months of winter, to give people an opportunity to be in this space and be together enjoying the gardens.
