Nordic Pharma 

Thank you to the Nordic Pharma UK team for your fantastic fundraising efforts and your hard work in the garden. It has really made a difference for us and our local community.

In September 2023 their team were back doing the dig with forks and spades a plenty, clearing the weeds far and wide. No small undertaking as this year was particularly bad for weeds and we were particularly affected by the thorny raspberry bushes and rhubarb.

In addition to the gardening efforts their team put in this year, they also undertook a Tough Mudder challenge in May and subsequently ran an in-house auction raising a total of £2000 which we wasted no time putting to good use, replacing the liner of our large garden pond.

Visiting schoolchildren love trawling the shallows for pond dwelling creatures that can be found in spring and summer, and a decent membrane is essential to maintain the right environment for their abundance.

We also purchased a cordless strimmer which has been brilliant for keeping things tidy.

For the remainder of the donation, we’re considering replacing a very rickety shed and extending the area used by the senior’s group (over 70’s), Thyme Together, to provide more space and raised beds for the visitors.

You can see how much fun the Nordic Pharma team had on their volunteering day, as well as some before and after pictures of the pond.
