‘Bags of Help’ for Haddo Country Park

If you shop at Tesco Ellon you can help. Haddo have been accepted into the Tesco ‘Bags of Help’ scheme for local community projects.  From 1st Nov until 1st January you can vote in-store for your preferred project.  The project Haddo are proposing is a total overhaul of the sensory/wildlife garden to make it fully accessible to all.

Haddo Country Park Forum Ltd is a not for profit organisation that relies on funding to continue to make improvements.  This project will be of great benefit to all the people who come to Haddo, but especially those with disabilities, dementia or mental health issues.  The area will be peaceful but stimulating and include reflexology stones, a new path system, raised flower beds, an all-ability event area, musical instruments, colour and texture.
