Ely Hero Awards are thrilled to donate £500 to Ely based Charity “Earth” from their fundraising activities during 2020-21. Earth supports individuals in the community with disabilities through horticultural efforts. Based behind the Larkfields Centre on High Barns, the charity has a fantastic set up of poly tunnels where plants are grown from seed, bird boxes are made along with other garden accessories. There is a regular cart that can be seen at Larkfields filled with plants all grown at the centre by service users.
The previous Mayor of Ely, Business Sponsors and Judges attended the much anticipated event which was delayed due to the recent challenges so it was rather special for guests to tour the facility and THE Ely Hero Award Winner of 2021, Amanda Hellman presented them with a fabulous £500 cheque which will provide a new roof for their hut! Earth representative Suzanne Lindsay said “On behalf of the staff and clients of Earth , who are the heart of the charity, thank you so much to Ely Heroes for their generous donation that will be used to help us grow and flourish’
If you haven’t heard of Earth, please get yourself down to Larkfields on High Barns on a Tuesday, Wednesday or Friday and see the work they do supporting local people, providing a safe place to enjoy horticultural work and of course purchase some new summer bedding plants!
