Linkage is a Lincolnshire based learning disability charity which provides a range of services including a further education college, care, day services, and employment support to help people with learning disabilities get into work. Students from the college have visited Gelder Group Head office over the course of the year and its students, who are studying City and Guilds Practical Horticulture/Skills for Working Life, have been working in the 16 acre environmental park to keep pathways clear, tending the planted areas, planting new bulbs and creating habitats for small mammals and insects.
Helen Spencer, (Horticulture Lecturer/Work Experience Team Leader) from the college commented about the initiative:
We are delighted to be working in partnership with Gelder Group and hope this relationship will continue and develop, I know our students love coming here.
