Huge congratulations to Megan Rees from Oxford who entered the competition hoping to change the life of her three year old daughter Ariella.
Ariella has severe disabilities, she was given a 10% chance of survival at birth and has beaten the odds. Her parents have had to give up work to provide round the clock care for her as her needs are so complex.
Ariella currently has nowhere safe to play outside and can’t even go to the park as it is too risky for her.
We are very excited to begin the transformation and give Ariella beautiful garden to play in. Watch this space!

As the mother of a 10 year old boy with Autism trying to fix a house on my own I'm at the end of my abilities and financiers to fix up the back garden into a safe place for him to play .
Something that he desperately wants as he has no friends in the area are there is no safe areas for him to explore outdoors that he very much loves .
The garden is currently overgrown and in need of hardscaping and is currently unsafe due to someone prior trying to make a small retaining wall from old paving slabs and rusty metal spikes . And a dangerous soil slope as access that has no steps .
I have tried local authorities and social work . Both said it is outwith their budgets to fix up .
My son would benefit greatly developmentally and socially from having a place he can play outdoors like a normal child can . And would also provid him with an calm area .. Something he currently can't have . It would also allow him the possibility to make friends as he could invite them to play in his garden if he only had one .that was autism friendly and safe .
As a single parent with no real support base or family around it would mean the world to me to be le to provid my son with a place we could enjoy as a family . Winning could literally change my sons world .
