Win a Grand for your Garden

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!

I am a single mother. I work in a school and have spent my life trying to be a good role model for my daughter by providing for her, working and ensuring we have a safe roof over our heads. I have moved recently to a 2 bedroom house. This was to cement my legacy to my daughter and provide us more room and a conducive environment to studying and relaxing as she is now older and gaining the skills to provide for herself.
I am now pregnant, excited and surprised. My relaxing environment now seems like a dream as other priorities take over. There will now be 3 people in what is a small house. Moving is not an option. We have only recently moved into this house. A garden make over would allow us as a family to have a space for relaxing. There is nothing like nature to relax and ground you. I also feel respect for nature goes hand in hand with respect for all and it is a space that I can share and nurture with my family and at the same time teach them to be nurturing. I need help because I don't know where or how to begin. I don't know if I will ever be able to afford having the garden done. It is a low priority when it's compared to baby clothes, furniture and equipment. And at the same time it is so important. I can imagine my daughter with her laptop, studying, sitting on the grass. The baby crawling around while I tend to the flowers and plants. It is a dream that I wish could come true and It would be a positive beginning for the life I want for my children.
