Fresh As A Daisy
Volunteers on the Prince’s Trust Team Programme revamped the gardens at a centre in Everton that supports people with disabilities.
As part of the programme, which is run by our Service, the young volunteers spruced up the grounds of The Daisy Nucleus Academy in Barnes Street, Everton.
The centre is run by the charity Daisy Inclusive UK and offers support for people with disabilities.
Volunteers from the Bootle Prince’s Trust Team gave the grounds a makeover with landscape gardening and new paintwork.
Guests, including members of the Prince’s Trust, MF&RS and Daisy Inclusive UK centre users, were invited to a special event where the work was unveiled.
At the special event to mark the completion of the project, the team also celebrated the 25th anniversary of the Prince’s Trust.
Dave Kelly, managing director of Daisy Inclusive UK, said: “It’s an incredible thing that the team has done and this is young people putting something back into the community.
“It is a long lasting legacy that will help people that come to Daisy Inclusive UK in years to come.”
The Prince’s Trust Team Programme is aimed at young people who are not in education or employment.
It is a 12-week programme and develops their skills to increase their employment opportunities. As well as completing a community project, the young people undertake a week-long residential stay and two weeks of work experience during the programme.
Sandra Parry, Prince’s Trust Team leader, added:
“The grounds of the centre look fantastic thanks to the hard work of the Prince’s Trust Team.
“It has been a really valuable opportunity for the team to work together and also work alongside people at the centre.
“Hopefully the people who use the centre will really benefit from the colourful garden area for a long time to come.”
