CPSL Mind was thrilled when the Ketton Horticultural Society presented them with a cheque for £1,500 towards their work, helping local people in their recovery from mental health challenges.

The money was raised from an open garden day held in the village in July. 7 gardens very generously opened their gates to over 200 local people, who all paid £5 each to stroll around their beautiful gardens and appreciate a wide variety of stunning plants and flowers. The WI also provided a selection of delicious cakes and refreshments in the Methodist Church for everyone to enjoy after their sightseeing.

Steve Allen (member of the Horticultural Society) said, “It was a truly lovely day. The weather was fabulous, the gardens were breath taking and everyone really enjoyed themselves. We were delighted that so many people took part. We are also extremely pleased to be supporting our local mental health charity. So many people struggle with their mental health and the work CPSL Mind does is extremely important.”

Zoe Doherty, Fundraiser for CPSL Mind said, “We are very grateful to the Ketton Horticultural Society for raising such an amazing amount of money and for organising such a wonderful event. Last year CPSL Mind provided 20,181 hours of direct support and 647 hours of workshops and peer support. With demand for our services remaining high, this donation means a great deal to us. A huge thank you to all the members, the WI and to the people who so generously opened their gardens for everyone to enjoy.
