Helping Mrs C take back control of her garden

2 GoodGymers made their way to help an isolated older person in Barnsley.

Two runners arrived early on Saturday morning to help Mrs C with her ever growing garden. Mrs C loves her garden so much, but unfortunately, since being in a wheelchair, she has been able to keep control over it. It was sad to hear that over the last few years, Mrs C has been ripped off and abused by paid gardeners who never completed the work she paid them for!

Determined to make a difference, we set to work mowing the lawn, weeding, sweeping and deadheading. In no time the garden looks like a different place and Mrs C was so so grateful and happy. There's certainly more to do that we couldn't manage in the hour we had, so we hope to return to finish the job!
