Help us grow a new therapy programme at the Parkinson’s Centre for Integrated Therapy

The Parkinson’s Centre for Integrated Therapy is very close to being able to launch our new Horticultural Therapy Programme.

Horticultural Therapy uses the power of gardening to improve the physical and mental well-being of people with Parkinson’s disease. Studies have shown that working in the garden can:

  • Enhance motor skills: Activities like raking, planting and weeding can improve dexterity, coordination and balance.
  • Boost mood and cognitive function: Spending time outdoors in nature has a well-documented positive impact on mental health.
  • Promote social interaction: Gardening provides a fantastic opportunity for people with Parkinson’s and their carers to connect and participate in a shared activity.

But to make this programme a success, we need your help!

We’re currently looking for donations of gardening equipment to get our therapeutic garden up and running.

Here’s a list of some of the items we could really use:

  • Wheelbarrows
  • Rakes
  • Brooms
  • Hoes
  • Seeds
  • Forks
  • Spades
  • Pots
  • Plants
  • Compost
  • Sleepers

Anything you can offer, big or small, will be hugely appreciated!

Donating gardening equipment is a fantastic way to support the Parkinson’s Centre and make a real difference to the lives of people living with this condition.

How to Donate:

If you have any of the items listed above that you’d be willing to donate, please get in touch with us by emailing us. We can arrange collection of larger items or you can drop them off at the Centre. Together, let’s cultivate a thriving garden that fosters well-being and connection for our Parkinson’s community.
