  |  Published: Apr 24th 2019

Lindengate, Mental Health Charity based in Wendover, was delighted to welcome Marion Clayton and Robert Duggan, Trustees from the Lionel Abel-Smith Trust, to the formal handover and opening of the Volunteer Hub.

The Lionel Abel-Smith Trust funded the purchase of a recycled portacabin to be used by volunteers, who who give their time to work on the stunning 5 acre site where the charity supports those with mental health needs.

This lovely facility creates a space for volunteers to store personal items, have a cuppa and relax after their hard work in the gardens. 

Lindengate is incredibly grateful to The Lionel Abel-Smith Trust for their most generous grant which in turn enables the charity to support its amazing team of 130 volunteers.  

Lindengate will be open for visitors at its "drop in" on Wednesday 1st May, 5pm to 7pm.  This gives guests the opportunity to look around the stunning 5 acre gardens and see how Lindengate supports those with mental health needs.  Everyone welcome. Refreshments available. Free entry.
