Get Active: volunteer, experience, connect with the natural world

We're so sad to hear the news about Paul O'Grady's passing.  He did so much for people and animals, both in Britain and around the world.  He was a true gentleman, compassion, kind, caring and funny.  All our thoughts are with his family, people and animals, his friends and of course everyone at Battersea Dogs and Cats Home.  They have set up a Tribute Fund for Paul O'Grady which you can donate to here.  Rest in peace, Paul, and thank you for all you did to bring animals to us on our screens and for all you did for them.  You will be so missed. 

Get Active: volunteer, experience, connect with the natural world and put animal magic into your life! 

Thrive with Thrive in the garden

Posted on


A lot has been written about the benefits of gardening but what happens for people who have disabilities, ill health or who are disadvantaged, vulnerable or isolated?

Well, there’s an amazing charity called Thrive.   They use gardening to bring about positive changes through social and therapeutic horticulture.

They help people work with plants to improve their physical and psychological health, as well as communication and thinking skills.

Gardens are very restful places to be in terms of the peace and quiet they offer people seeking recovery.                                                            

Thrive is always looking for volunteers to help
