About the Project
We plan to offer cheap lunches to the community and create a space that the community can access and use. We want to offer evenings of bingo and burgers, host musical evenings and bring the retired building back to life, whilst celebrating its heritage.
About the Charity
Willow Tree Garden started as a project as there was a desperate need for activities, education for people with additional needs post 19 years old. The charity has grown out of a need to provide places for more and more people. We have developed 2 sites (Willow Tree Garden and Willow Tree Works) and we are in the process of developing a third site, called Willow Tree Tuns (an old pub) to create an educational catering environment for people with additional needs to gain an education in basic life skills, to enable them to socialise and reduce isolation. We offer workshops to under 19s during the holidays and again these are oversubscribed. We believe passionately that folk with additional needs deserve a chance in life to reach their full potential and make their lives a shinier place.
