Walk for wildflowers 🌻🌸🌻🌼🌻
My mum Maureen is doing a "Captain Moore(reen)" style fundraiser for us. She will be doing a sponsored "walk for wildflowers" using her zimmer - a lap round the block for 10 days (in fine weather). Her practice took 50 minutes to complete the 500m lap. She usually doesn't walk and uses a scooter, each lap is more than she has walked in a decade. We are hoping to raise £500 towards the cost of the St Aubyns Wildflower turf, so if you can sponsor her a few pounds that would be fantastic.
Maureen's practice run can be viewed here:

We will be updating her progress on our Eastbrook Community Gardeners Facebook page:
