Budding gardeners bring spring cheer to Cardinal Hume Centre

Spring is coming early to the Cardinal Hume Centre, thanks to a special gardening project taking place on Saturday 24 February.

The charity – which helps people overcome poverty and homelessness – will see local children and parents who visit the Centre, along with young people living there, spending an afternoon sprucing up the outdoor areas at its premises in the heart of Westminster.

With the help of Centre staff and volunteer expert gardener, Imogen Ramm, green fingered enthusiasts – young and old – will have the chance to plant seeds, tidy the grounds, tend to healthy greenery, and putting in new bedding plants. As well as improving the appearance of the Centre’s surroundings, these fun activities aim to promote the health and wellbeing of all those taking part.

Gaia Segal, Lifeskills Development Co-ordinator at the Cardinal Hume Centre said: “Gardening is a great way to improve mental and physical health. Not only does it get people out in the fresh air, it also helps to foster community spirit and pride in their surroundings. I look forward to welcoming our families and residents along and hope that the sun will shine for us!”
