Broadcast on Thursday 11th February 2016. Our studio guest was Emma Mills, Volunteer and Event Coordinator at Blackthorn Trust in Maidstone. The charity is celebrating their 30th Anniversary and embarking on a big expansion project to be able to help more people who need their services. Listen to the show to find out how the charity operate and how their services can help individuals with a range of mental and physical health conditions build confidence, self esteem and develop work-life skills. The Blackthorn Garden plays a big role at the trust, not just producing a range of ingredients that are used in the Garden Café but also in the range of activities available to co-workers and volunteers of the trust. There’s certainly plenty to see if you’d like to visit.
