Copy of Charity appeals for centenary fundraisers

Disability charity the Enham Trust has marked its centenary with a ‘100’ flowerbed art installation in Enham Alamein.


It comes as the charity, which helps disabled people to live, work and enjoy life, marks 100 years since its incorporation as a trust. Since then, Enham Trust has supported more than 250,000 disabled people to live full lives and reach their goals, with an ambition to continue making a difference within the disabled community for the next 100 years and beyond.


The celebratory flowerbed was planted by Enham Trust’s very own gardening team of both supported and non-supported employees, some of whom joined ‘Team Enham’ via their Strive programme, which helps support disabled people into work.


Alongside the flowers planted by the team are colourful plaques depicting disabled people painted by residents living within the charity’s care homes. These paintings highlight just some of the many positive aspects of disability.


To help Enham Trust mark their centenary, the charity is seeking 100 fundraisers. Individuals or groups are being asked to make up their own challenge to do with the number 100, or they can sign up to one of Enham Trust’s pre-curated or partner events. See www.enhamtrust.org.uk/100-challenge for more information.
