Green-tech has donated in excess of eight pallets of horticulture sundries to adult-education charity, Horticap.
Horticap, based in Harrogate, North Yorkshire and whose Patron is Alan Titchmarsh MBE VMH DL, provides adults with learning and other disabilities with training in horticulture, allied crafts and rural skills.
Green-tech, the UKs largest supplier of landscaping products is well known for its support of both local and national charities and associations. They donated a mix of pots, trays and hanging basket accessories which are being used by the students.
Horticap aims to provide students who have learning and other disabilities with a supportive and friendly working environment in which to develop their social and communication abilities. They aim to help students extend their knowledge and skills, through structured training using professionally qualified staff and volunteers. In addition, they have a large garden, which includes a wildlife and bird spotting area, that is open for members of the public to enjoy.
Phil Airey, Assistant Manager at Horticap said, “A big big thank you to Green-tech for the donation of pots and trays. This will save us lots of money. You are stars. We are just so delighted that Green-tech has been able to support us and donate products that are so essential for us. Our students will use all of these items which will ultimately grow plants for our beautiful garden or to sell in the shop which helps fund us.”
Green-tech’s Marketing Manager Lizzy Rose added, “We were so impressed with the set-up at Horticap and what they achieve, we were delighted to be able to help them. I had the privilege to meet two of the students who were a delight and an inspiration. Horticap really does transform lives and it has been our honour to help them.”
