Boughton have donated 10 tonnes of premium grade topsoil to The Green Patch charity, to fill a rowing boat donated from Wicksteed Park, which will become a raised bed for plants come spring. The soil will also be used to create a new rockery next to an existing herb spiral, which will contain medicinal plants.
The Green Patch is a community garden project tucked away on a large housing estate in Kettering, hosting volunteer days, children’s clubs, education sessions and family events.
They support after school clubs for mainstream and disabled children; young people and adult employment programmes; alternative education; and support adult volunteering including those with mental health issues such as depression.

We are delighted to have supported the charity scheme and look forward to seeing the results in spring!
