Summary

Join our amazing team of volunteers maintaining and caring for our sensory garden at Rainbow Court.

Detailed description

Calling all gardening lovers - Get your green fingers at the ready! Have you any spare time and enjoy gardening?


We are on the lookout for friendly folk to help us maintain the large sensory garden and communal areas at our supported living complex, Rainbow Court, in Paston, Peterborough.


Our sensory garden give our residents the opportunity to relax and enjoy the great outdoors with many of our residents taking an active role growing their own vegetables and flowers.


They would love further help in cutting the grass, weeding and sprucing up the communal seating. Whatever the time of year, there are tasks to keep us busy!


We will supply all tools and equipment - we just require keen and passionate individuals who have some knowledge and enjoy gardening to help us make the space look the best it can.

About Deafblind UK

We support people who have combined sight and hearing loss which affects their access to information, mobility and communication. We help them to live with their condition and to build their confidence and independence.

Deafblindness affects everyone in different ways. Some people might have mild sight and hearing loss whereas others can’t see or hear anything. It can be isolating and lonely and can lead to mental health issues - but it’s far more common than many people realise. Around 400,000 people are affected by sight and hearing loss in the UK.
