David Rowell had always had a passion for horticulture and agriculture, so when he passed away his family chose to remember him by donating in his memory to Thrive.

David’s daughter told us “The garden was his great love; Saturdays and holidays were spent in the garden. He was long suffering, allowing his children to ruin his lawn with sports and games etc. He had a lovely vegetable garden, a garden shed and in later years a greenhouse. He had a wall built down some of the garden to create a little sun trap so he could sit with Mum and enjoy all they had created”.

As David had a love of gardening and a huge concern for others the family decided to remember him by donating to Thrive in his memory and placed a bench in our Woodland Garden.

By making a donation to Thrive we are able to carry on running our programmes to help more people through gardening.

We really are so grateful for every donating we receive and donating in memory of a loved one is even more special.

If you would like to learn more about how you could make a donation in memory of someone or you would like to request funeral collection envelopes please email us at fundraising@thrive.org.uk or give us a call on 0118 988 5688.
