We had a visit recently from one of our fantastic volunteers, Matt. Matt's employer gives him a couple of days' volunteering leave every year, and we're very pleased he chooses to spend those helping us in Corton House.
Matt partnered with resident Brian to build this beautiful planter which is now brightening up the patio. Brian was in his element and knew all the DIY tricks as he once built his own house! Well done both, excellent handiwork!

Always read the instructions!

DIY is also a spectator sport! Gisela enjoyed watching Brian and Matt put the planter together.

A job well done!
