Meet the guys who have masterminded the logistics, construction and development of the unique garden for children with cerebral palsy on behalf of the Dame Vera Lynn Trust.
Under Steve and Bernie’s guidance, Muscles volunteers have contributed over 220 voluntary hours as the project moves into its final stages.
On Saturday 11th May, ten volunteers descended on the Trust premises in Burstall and made rapid progress on the roof, walls and flooring of the enclosed play area.
The week leading up to and including 11th May witnessed a further 70 hours, including the off-site manufacture by Bernie and Sophie of (to quote Bernie), “the worlds largest dice”!
Sara White from Dame Vera Lynn Trust commented, “On behalf of everyone at the Dame Vera Lynn Trust Suffolk I would like to thank all the lovely volunteers who attending the school on Saturday to work on the final stages of the outdoor classroom and sensory garden. All of your hard work and dedication is very much appreciated by everyone at the charity. I was really impressed again with the level of teamwork and the way each task is carried out in such an efficient way, it is amazing to see. It was lovely to meet some new faces and also Elaine’s fab dog Barney who was the team mascot for the day. Elaine looked after the team well with plenty tea and coffee and even cooked sausages on the BBQ for breakfast! The garden is looking fantastic now and the kids and families will just love the space! We can’t wait for the opening event on Thursday 13th June 11am-2pm and we hope that we will see the Muscles team there to celebrate their achievements with them. Thank you again to all involved & see you again soon”
