Bunnings lend a helping hand

 

When The Mai-Wel Group approached Bunnings Warehouse Maitland for assistance to create a multi-purpose garden for its participants, the team were happy to roll up their sleeves and get to work.

Not only have Bunnings taken the time to help Mai-Wel participants and support staff refurbish the garden at The Hill, in John St Telarah, they have also generously supplied plants, flowers, herbs, mulch and tools.The goal of the project is to create a multi-purpose sustainable garden that can be used to teach participants a variety of skills and activities. From growing their own food, to plants and flowers, the space will also serve as a calming environment where participants can relax, unwind and enjoy nature.

“It’s wonderful that Bunnings are assisting Mai-Wel participants to gain valuable life skills. They have supported us on numerous occasions in the past and we’re proud to work with such a great organisation” said Pennie Kearney, CEO of The Mai-Wel Group.

Participants of the project will showcase their work and skills when they cook and serve the food they have grown to family, friends and Bunnings team members in the coming months at small event hosted by Mai-Wel titled Harvest Festival.
