Staff help out with Leeds allotment project

Have your say

Staff at a project that supports people with multiple needs have stepped in to help another initiative.

Workers at the Wy-Fi Project decided to pitch in at the 5 WAYS Grow Together allotment for their staff away day.

They carried out a number of gardening tasks at the Hyde Park allotment.

The 5 WAYS members are former clients of Forward Leeds who take part in sustainable gardening once a week as part of their recovery.

Sue Northcott, project manager at Wy-Fi, said: “We were looking for something our team could do to help another project. We wanted to help where people were already helping themselves. Our roles can be quite challenging. This is therapeutic for the members so we thought it would be good therapy for us. To be out in the fresh air and really get involved.”
