Plea for gardening equipment

We are in the process of setting up a Gardening scheme for our students who access the nurture room. It is hoped that they will get involved in all aspects of caring for a successful garden in the grounds at Southbourne. Last year we were awarded funds from the PTA as part of a bid to set up the scheme. Now we are appealing for any gardening tools and equipment you no longer need – that the students can make use of, in maintaining and developing the garden.



All gardening tools and equipment would be greatly appreciated. Any surplus tools we receive will go to the charity TWAM (Tools with a Mission) whose aim is to collect unwanted tools, refurbish them, sort them into trade kits and send them across the world for livelihood creation.



Please drop any donations off at our Southbourne school reception or alternatively email to arrange for collection.
