So proud of you Matthew!
Last year Matthew volunteered with our ROC Garden team in Partington to transform 20 overgrown gardens in the area and helped make such a massive difference ☺️
It doesn’t surprise us to see Matthew here in this photo doing what comes natural to him - being the first to help out and make a difference where it is needed.
Well done Matthew! A great example for us all to follow 👍👍
Yes Matthew! 👏
Could you help our Blackpool team reach their target?
Not so long ago, our ROC Garden team featured on a prime time BBC One show, highlighting our work in the communities of Blackpool as ‘charity heroes’ ☺️
Now we need your help! 🙏
In the last 24 hrs we‘ve received £230 towards our new van!! THANK YOU so much for your incredible donations!
This puts us now at 66% towards our target of £5,500
Just £1,850 remaining! We can do this 💪💪💪💪
Please follow this link below to give to our cause, and please help us by sharing this post and video to show people first hand what we do, and why we need to hit our target soon 😇
(Hope you like our trikes too (an engine might be needed though 😂😂))

ROC Garden Services
We’re excited today to offer our ROC Garden tricycles to support the food parcel delivery from @ The Grange in Grange Park, Blackpool.
Our trikes normally carry a full set of gardening tools and equipment including a lawn mower, strimmer, hedge cutter, as well as spades, rakes and everything you need to field a team of 5-10 volunteers to transform an overgrown garden. They are perfect for volunteers who don’t have access to a car 👍
But during this time, to support the efforts of vulnerable people needing to self-isolate, our tricycles will be a great help to volunteers helping to deliver food parcels, medicines, etc. around the estate.
The work is being coordinated by the Groundwork team based from @ The Grange, and also supported by the local Church of England, as well as volunteers from other local community groups too.
Mike (in the photo), one of our team from ROC, will also be volunteering to support with the deliveries on our trikes 😎

JUST A FEW HOURS TO GO!
Check out how much our total has grown in the last 24-hours!!! 🤩🤩🤩🤩
From 15% to now 56%!! We can do this!! 💪💪💪
Can you help us tip the total and get us to 100% tonight??
#AvivaCommunityFund #ROCGarden #Donation #Pledge #GoingToAGoodCause #AGoodCause #Trending #CrowdFunder #Christmas #NewYear #WeAreROC
With 2 days left in the Aviva Community Fund, we are calling out for a final push for pledges.
We are just 15% of the way there, and to reach 100% in the next 2 days may feel a stretch too far...
... however, we have been informed that there are still some Aviva Staff Members with some larger grants left to allocate, so a final furlong towards the finish line might encourage them to land just enough to help us reach our target of £2,500 to help us buy a van for our ROC Garden team!! 💪 🚘
We’re looking to encourage some very generous individuals out there to pledge £10, £20, £50, £100, £500 or more to help us smash through!
Could you be the person that could make all the difference?

From a few weeks ago, our incredible volunteer team in Partington successfully reduced the height of this privet hedge, bringing much more light and space to the garden, as well as to remove many overhanging branches from their neighbours side as well.
This was a big job, but with great community spirit too! You can see from the photos just how much we took off as well 😲
