Ollie's Garden Appeal

Ollie's Garden AppealOllie loves being outdoors but unfortunately Ollie’s garden space is possibly the most unsuitable area for a child with Ollie’s difficulties. Ollie is 4 years old and has Cerebral Palsy and a Tracheostomy. This means he can neither walk unaided nor talk.

A more accessible garden would enable Ollie to be able to move around in his walking frame, and thus encourage more muscle development. Making the garden physically and playfully accessible will genuinely make a huge difference to Ollie’s life.

I.J. Street have designed a space for Ollie and made an appeal to local suppliers for material donations. This will save a big chunk of the cost once Ollie’s Garden project has started. However, we still need to raise £13k to help with the costs associated with such an ambitious project. Many tonnes of earth will need to be removed along with the building of structural walls to ensure a safe environment for Ollie.
