My story

[p][b]After injury last year and missing the 2018 London Marathon, I'm back...[/b][/p][p][br][/p][p][i]"Cherry Tree has offered me the chance to do things I would never have done otherwise"[/i][/p][p][i]"I realise now that I am not stupid. I have been made to feel stupid all my life"[/i][/p][p][b][i]Quotes from the volunteers at SWOP.[/i][/b][/p][p]I'm running the 2019 London Marathon for a small charity called SWOP- the Sheltered Work Opportunities Project. The charity was set up to provide sheltered work rehabilitation in a supportive working environment for people with severe and enduring mental illness. The charity’s aim is to create a loving community for people who often feel frightened, isolated and powerless.[/p][p]SWOP runs two nurseries- Cherry Tree Nursery in Bournemouth and Chestnut Nursery in Poole. There are many different types of work available including growing plants, managing stock and helping customers, all of which contribute to the running of the nursery and to the strengthening of a mutually self-supporting community.[/p][p]Please see the charity website at: http://www.cherrytreenursery.org.uk/[/p][p]Training is underway... I'm doing this to fundraise for the Sheltered Work Opportunities Project and as a personal challenge. Please help me to make a big difference to everyone at SWOP![/p][p]Thank you, love from Charlotte x[/p]
