Thrive and LOFA have teamed up to help people in need. Thriving on the power of gardening, LOFA have formed a partnership with charity organisation THRIVE. They believe that gardening can bring positive change in people's lives.

Through their therapeutic gardening and horticulture programmes, THRIVE have proven that gardening can have a profound impact on physical and mental well-being. LOFA are committed to supporting their work by donating funds each year. By working together, we can help more people living with disabilities, ill health, isolation, or disadvantage to enjoy the many benefits of gardening.

Greenfingers - Creating magical gardens for children in hospices.

LOFA are great supporters of Greenfingers, and we donate funds each year to this wonderful charity.

Greenfingers aims to provide all life-limited children, their families, and carers, within their hospice, emotional support through the power and pleasure of nature.

They create beautiful, well-designed outdoor spaces for children to enjoy with their family, friends and siblings, whether through play and fun, or therapeutic rest and relaxation.

Greenfingers Charity is driven by the belief that time spent outdoors, away from the bedside, can offer children and families under considerable stress a vital opportunity to embrace the benefits of being in the fresh air and engaging with the natural environment.

They are committed to creating specially designed, stimulating garden spaces that can bring many benefits to children with life-limiting conditions. Whilst many people may take for granted the simple pleasure of being able to enjoy a garden, for these children, their siblings and their families, the chance to spend time together outdoors and away from the bedside is precious.
