Grants Up For Grabs: Thrive South Abingdon

Posted by HIPPO

In June we provided Thrive South Abingdon with a free HIPPOBAG and collection, courtesy of our Grants up for Grabs scheme.

Thrive engage with over 200 young people in 3 locations - Barton, Leys and South Abingdon, to help them bring hope and lasting change to their communities through detached youth work, sports outreach, one-to-one mentoring, a young achievers project and a young people programme.

The free MIDIBAG and collection was used to assist with a project serving a local school, to transform their courtyard garden. This involved taking down a crumbling and dangerous brick-built raised bed and replacing it with a new safer raised bed.
Here you can see the before and after:


The clearing of the raised bed has made way for us to begin making the children’s garden designs a reality and provide them with a sense of ownership over their courtyard garden.
