The Green Hub Project for Teens - Lawnmover appeal

Hi, I'm Tone Tellefsen Hughes and I'm fund raising for The Green Hub Project for Teens. It is a new local community project based in Milford, Surrey and we offer social and therapeutic horticulture therapy to teenagers between 13 and 18 years with low to moderate mental health issues.

In partnership with the NHS locally, we enable teen referrals to enjoy nature, while gardening alongside and interacting with our skilled volunteers and other teenagers. Our goal is to achieve positive, measurable outcomes for teens’ mental well-being, self-love, active lifestyles, social interaction and inclusion, as well as the development and application of a range of useful skills.

Over time, our vision is to provide a wider range of therapies and life-skills workshops, and to help set-up and mentor similar projects in other areas.

We desperately need a lawnmower and strimmer to keep the garden in good order - at the moment we depend on the goodwill of volunteers, who bring their own equipment and have to manhandle it through Luck's Yard Clinic each time. It's just not a sustainable way to continue.

The items need to be battery powered - for safety with the teens - and good quality for durability. The total cost with spare batteries is £950. 

Your support raising the funds to buy these would be hugely appreciated. Thank you, Tone
