Across Hollybank Trust, we pride ourselves on the relationships we build within the local communities we’re a part of.
Two of the adults who live in Sycamores, our community home in South Kirkby have been taking part in a local community project in their area which involves doing woodwork activities and creating garden features using only recyclable materials and items.They’re also revamping Sycamore’s communal garden, they’re very busy!
As a part of their involvement in the project, they produce products to be sold in The Dr Jackson Cancer Fund Charity Shop in Hemsworth. Recently, they received certificates to thank them for their hard work as volunteers for the charity.
They were also awarded the Ken award which was set up by a local miner within their local community. The award honours people who reach out to help others, despite their own personal circumstances.
Some of the adults who live at Willow Court, our 24 hour dedicated nursing service based on our Mirfield site have been accessing a community allotment project called Growing Works. They’ve been enjoying planting runner beans, sunflowers and tomatoes! They enjoy seeing the progress and the growth of the things they help to plant.
