Warrington based garden centre and upcycling charity, The Walton Lea Partnership, has captured the imagination of award-winning local house builder, David Wilson Homes (DWH) North West, sparking an exciting new collaboration between the two organisations.

As part of its ongoing programme of community and charitable activities, Our Space Your Place, DWH North West has donated £750 to fund specialist flooring needed for Walton Lea’s new polytunnel at the charity’s Long Lane Garden Centre – but has pledged to do much more to support the charity going forwards.

So far, designer furniture from some of DWH’s local show homes in Warrington has also been donated to Walton Lea, to be sold at the charity’s walled garden premises located off Chester Road at Higher Walton.

Future plans include commissioning and buying home and garden products at selected sales sites, and promoting the charity’s bicycle recycling service via its website and nearby show homes.

The Walton Lea Project provides supported employment for adults with a range of physical and learning disabilities, offering jobs and work experience at its two sites in Warrington. It aims to deliver an exciting and innovative programme of education and skills training that has the potential to progress learners into further training and education.

Activities include gardening, woodwork, floristry, furniture and bicycle up-cycling. Its aim is to improve the self-esteem and status of adults with learning difficulties by helping them to play a full part in the local community.

Between its two sites, Walton Lea sells a huge variety of home-grown shrubs, flowers, fruit and veg, hanging baskets and window boxes, as well as stylishly up-cycled crafts and furniture for the home and garden.

All the products used are hand-crafted utilising cleverly recycled materials, and plants are nurtured from seed.

Commenting on the new relationship, Long Lane Garden Centre Site Manager, Julie “The Walton Lea Partnership is thrilled to be working alongside DWH and look forward to forming a long and successful relationship.”

DWH North West Sales Director, said: “When we became aware of the charity and all the fantastic work it does, we knew we wanted to do more than just offer a cash donation.

“We build high quality family homes in the local area, and are always looking for ways to create inspiring home interiors and exteriors for our customers. We also place a lot of emphasis on supporting the communities in which we work.

“The Walton Lea Project creates and sells a wonderfully eclectic and unique range home and garden products which not only support a great cause – but also tap into the huge trend for up-cycling and sustainability.

“We’re delighted to be able to get involved and are really looking forward to showcasing some of the items made by Walton Lea’s beneficiaries at our nearby developments.”

DWH North West offers a wide range of homes at developments across the region, from modern one bedroom apartments through to luxury five bedroom family homes.
