On the 26th October, Wire Fence donated a full day of profits to a Suffolk based charity called Beyond The Wall to celebrate National Pumpkin Day.
Beyond The Wall is a charity based in the ‘Walled Garden’ on the Thornham Estate in Thornham, North Suffolk. They work with people from 16 years upwards who have a disability. The team is focused on removing barriers to enable everyone to attain a fulfilling and meaningful life. They are a ‘not for profit’ organisation, all funds raised go to meet the needs of their clients.
Beyond The Wall’s aim is to build up their learners’ confidence and self esteem while teaching them the skills which will unlock future opportunities for them in mainstream education, sheltered volunteering or employment.
“We are hoping to put the funds towards some lightweight wheelbarrows for the garden and a garden trolly. Some standard wheelbarrows are too heavy for our clients so some lightweight models will make a lot of jobs much more accessible and inclusive for everyone.
People can support our charity in many ways. We are a garden open to the public and our clients are proud when we have visitors to the garden, it’s free to walk around and we have a tearoom that’s open every Wednesday and Thursday. Our clients make all of the cakes, some independently and some supported and guided by staff, they serve customers and prepare all of the orders.” – Rozelle Bettesworth (Centre Manager)
Pumpkin Day is dedicated to celebrating the world’s favourite autumn crop and its versatile nature. Whether it’s an autumn display or a delicious dessert at the end of the Sunday dinner, pumpkins never disappoint. Wire Fence decided to celebrate this day by supporting the community of people responsible for bringing this delicious crop on our tables – gardeners.
Wire Fence is dedicated to helping those in need. They decided to support different organisations regularly by organising fundraising events. Read more about this charitable initiative here: https://www.wirefence.co.uk/pumpkin-day-2022/
