Step out for Trellis

Why we need your help

Take on our STEP OUT CHALLENGE this May. 

Walk, run or wheel your way to log 50 miles during May. Or why not take on a challenge of your own?  It could be anything and over one day, during Mental Health Awareness Week or for the whole month.  It doesn't matter. And it doesn't matter what you do - dance your way through May, A walk a day in May - whatever you choose we'd be delighted to have you on board.  You could even gather a team together and do a socially distanced or virtual challenge.

Not only will you improve your own mental wellbeing but you will be raising vital funds to improve the wellbeing of disadvantaged and vulnerable people across Scotland through gardening. 

As we mark Mental Health Awareness Week (10-16th May), Trellis knows just how important time in nature, gardens and gardening can have to improve our mood and reduce stress. At Trellis we want to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to take part in gardening activities to improve their wellbeing, people like Mary:

Mary has hardly seen her family for a year because they haven’t been allowed to visit. She’s scared, confused and lonely. Then Beth comes in, the care home’s activity co-ordinator, and she’s carrying a parcel.  She enthuses about the session she attended the other day with Trellis and now the parcel has arrived – full of seeds, pots and simple instructions. They are going to make an edible flower patch, she says.  And several pairs of eyes light up. Because for a time Mary and other residents have something meaningful to do, their spirits are lifted, it connects them to nature and brings back memories of happy times – times when they used to garden with their own grandfather or grandchildren. And even better, they have something to look after and nurture, to watch grow and flourish in the coming months.

We'd love to hear about and share your fundraising stories so get in touch or share the fun with the hashtag #StepoutforTrellis

Well done Jenny Jane and Jo. You've put me to shame. You give much for Trellis in your working week and giving over 'free' time to do even more - activities which I know you enjoy, but every day,?! in our lovely late Spring wintry weather?!! Top marks!
