Garden Photo Competition to raise funds for Countryside Mobility

Date Posted: 6 April 2021

Share a photo of your garden and tell us why it brings you so much joy

Our sister project Countryside Mobility Hire Scheme is partnering up with Devon based topsoil and turf company HCT Turf this summer to help raise funds to refurbish one of the long standing all terrain mobility scooters or 'tramper'.  Between June to July HCT Turf will be inviting Devon based garden owners to take a photograph of their garden or favourite part of their garden, and share it on social media with the hashtag #ILoveMyGarden along with the reason why they love it.

Anyone in Devon can take part, you don't have to have a particularly large or botanical garden.  Perhaps you love your clean cut, weed free lawn, or your courtyard garden bench where you have your morning coffee is your favorite spot or the birdbath which you watch from the kitchen window.  Whatever aspect of your garden you love, we would love to see a photo, you might win a hamper of local goodies and the converted 'golden spade trophy' you also get to help us raise vital funds for charitable scheme Countryside Mobility.

Steff Dennis from HCT Turf said, “We hope you’ll all join us in sharing your beautiful garden photos to reach our target donation to this wonderful local charity.”

HCT Turf will donate £1 for every entry to Countryside Mobility

Here at Heritage Ability, we improve access to a range of beautiful gardens, large and small, with the help of the countryside mobility hire scheme.  Countryside Mobility ensures that people with restricted mobility get to enjoy these open spaces through the provision of the 'tramper'.  For every entry into the competition, HCT Turf will give £1, with the aim to raise £1000 which will enable Countryside Mobility to refurbish one of its long standing trampers.

Neil Warren of Countryside Mobility said “Being able to access the great outdoors has never been more important. We're so grateful for this fundraising opportunity which we hope will enable one of our longest serving Trampers to get some much needed TLC. This will guarantee many more special memories for families and friends enjoying beautiful places together.”

Over the coming weeks, we will be sharing more information on this exciting local fundraising photo competition.  You can find out more, including last year's Golden Spade winners on the HCT Turf website.
