Volunteer day at Our Barn Community

It was wonderful to visit Our Barn Community in the grounds of the beautiful National Trust Osterley Park.

Our Barn is an amazing charity that runs community-based activities providing learning, life skills and social interaction for young people aged between 16 to 35 with learning disabilities or autism. They have an incredible garden and allotment at Jubilee Lodge which provides life skill and social activities to the young people there.

Haverstock volunteered to help do some of the heavy lifting in laying some new paths to make the garden more wheelchair accessible, and rebuilding fences, alongside some of the wonderful staff and young people. Hopefully we’ll be back to do some more work with them and meet some more of the fantastic people who benefit so much from a beautiful setting and a fantastic charity.
