Haverhill councillor donates £250 to Suffolk Mind allotment project
Cllr Elaine McManus, who represents Haverhill North at St Edmundsbury Borough Council, has donated £250 to an allotment project run in Haverhill by Suffolk Mind.
Mrs McManus has given the grant from her locality budget to the 'Get up and Grow' ecotherapy allotment project, which operates in Haverhill each Thursday from 12.30pm to 3.30pm.
The project offers people the chance to learn about gardening and contribute to the creation of a thriving growing space that benefits everyone.
People can also make new friends and get support from other group members.
Get up and Grow encourages people to participate in gardening to improve their physical and mental wellbeing.
