Welcome to The Raft Foundation

The Raft Foundation Volunteer Trip to The Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew


With thanks to Post-it UK from whom we won the competition to enable our volunteer trip to Kew Royal Botanic Gardens, it was an opportunity to those who actively support our community through The Raft Foundation by volunteering week in week out to share an incredible shared experience.


Special thanks go to Antonia at the Grow Wild project for gaining free entry for us into Kew and Cllr Anne Cheetham and her daughter Penelope for facilitating a spectacular discount for refreshments for us all.


Thanks also for Collette Butler our community champion at Tesco Haslingden for providing much appreciated coach refreshments.


And of course all our volunteers who made it a very special day for us all, thank you.
