Sowing the seeds for a flowering friendship with garden charity

We are committed to supporting charities at Chrisbeon so when the opportunity arose to help Erlas Victorian Walled Garden in Wrexham we were only too pleased to be of assistance!

Erlas strives to promote and protect the health of people with disabilities through the provision of meaningful daytime activity, education and work experience in a garden business environment. The charity’s work helps individuals develop mental and physical capabilities – improving their quality of life.

Important role 

It’s an amazing charity and does so much good work with people in the Wrexham area to improve their daily lives, so we are delighted to have been able to donate a range of office furniture and supplies to support their ongoing efforts, including:

  • Six office chairs 
  • Three four-drawer filing cabinets
  • 50 mini-white envelopes
  • 250 C4 white envelopes
  • 250 C4 brown envelopes
  • 500 no-window white envelopes
  • 10 A4 lined notepads
  • 6 reels of sellotape
  • 50 red and 50 black pens
  • 12 yellow highlighters
  • 2 mini-notebooks
  • 24 pencils
  • 1 pair of scissors
  • 36 sticky notepads
  • 4 mini-sticky notepads
  • 10 spiral notepads
  • 3 A5 notepads
  • 50 green suspension files
  • 100 A4 punched pockets
  • 1 yellow box file 
  • 2 A4 green lever arch files

‘Donation is huge’

Sorrel Taylor, Charity Lead Officer at Erlas Victorian Walled Garden, said: “Erlas Victorian Walled Garden is a working garden for adults with additional needs that is reliant on funding and donations to survive.

The donation from Chrisbeon is huge and the amount of stationery donated will keep the charity going for months and months. The filing cabinets are lockable so a huge asset as the ones we had really were not fit for purpose

“The charity has had second hand, very worn chairs for a number of years so to have six new office chairs has made a considerable difference to the team. We are so very grateful and pass on the biggest thank you to Chrisbeon from everyone at Erlas Victorian Walled Garden.”

Vital to support charities

Chrisbeon is proud to play a role within the community and is always ready to help a good cause whenever we can. We are living through difficult economic times and we are only too aware of the tightening financial constraints on businesses and other groups and of course charities.

The work of charities is extremely important which is why it is so vital for them to receive the necessary support to help them continue. It is something we are always mindful of at Chrisbeon and will always stand ready to help wherever possible.
