As part of CSV Make a Difference Day, the UK’s single biggest day of volunteering, Lynne Featherstone MP last week helped out at FAITH Plant centre, the Wood Green based garden centre where adults with learning difficulties volunteer and gain essential life skills.
The Hornsey and Wood Green MP joined service users Merle and June in clearing the FAITH’s grounds from autumn leaves and was rewarded with a special tour of the centre’s unique and colourful plants.
Lynne Featherstone took part to show the positive impact that giving time to benefit others could have, and to show the importance of community spirit in tough times.
Lynne Featherstone MP commented:
“FAITH Plant centre is a truly unique gem, working with residents with learning difficulties as well as local school kids, to spread knowledge about plants, and helping to dress Haringey’s parks in colour each season.
“That’s why I feel it is especially exciting to do my bit to help raise awareness about the importance of volunteering here at FAITH. And to top it off, I have really had a great time being out in the fresh air, clearing the grounds with Merle and June.”
