THE National Autistic Society's South West base in Brent Knoll has received a donation of trees from a Somerset garden centre.
Monkton Elm Garden and Pet Centre donated the saplings, which will go towards supporting the society’s upcoming nature trail and yurt project, which will offer holidays and respite for adults with autism in the home’s 26-acre site.
Matthew Wilmott, deputy manager at the Harp Road site, said: “We are creating a trim-trail and nature reserve area and with a new glamping site.
“There will be a nature trail, outdoor apparatus, picnic areas and forest school activities catering for all abilities. The new projects are based on a woodland theme so the saplings will come in very handy here.”
