Our gardening club volunteers took delivery of a very special gift this month - a fantastic John Deere sit on mower, which was very generously donated to us by Farol Ltd.

Matt Vellacott, Managing Director at Farol, told us "we are very pleased and proud to help such a worthy cause.”

The new mower was delivered by Farol Twyford's Manager, Barry Sharp. He kindly spent the morning with our volunteers giving them a tutorial on looking after it and showing them how to use it.

Children and families love using the outside space at our beautiful hospice and the new mower will make it so much easier to maintain our grounds for them to enjoy.

Thank you Matt, Barry and all at Farol for your wonderful and generous donation, it really will make a world of difference.

Well done to these Spartan heroes! 💪

We are so proud of the team from OpenText office in Reading who took on the mighty Spartan Obstacle Race in Henley earlier this month.

For those unfamiliar with Spartan races, they are obstacle courses that test speed, strength and endurance. The OpenText team had to conquer 20 off-road obstacles, including climbing walls, crawling under wire, traversing monkey bars, spear throws and of course lots of mud!

An amazing challenge and they managed to raise over £725! 👏
