West Berkshire Mencap Charity Race Day 2023 – West Berkshire Mencap (

The Mulberry Garden is a horticultural therapy project which uses gardening to gain positive changes for adults with a learning disability. The aim is to improve work and social skills, raise self-esteem and confidence and offer greater social inclusion. The Mulberry Project is an exciting project that will see West Berks Mencap services revitalised and offering inspired new opportunities for adults and children. Phase I which was to relocate and modernise the Growing4All project is almost complete.

Phase two is a complete re-vamp and update of the children’s play area. Although functional, our current play area is tired and dated. We have 117 children registered accessing our services who use the play area. It currently doesn’t afford our children the fun and adventure experienced by others; So we plan to build an area that will both fire imagination and bring new experiences.

It will include Hobbit Houses, a new sensory garden, covered walk-ways with raised flower beds and a wheelchair accessible mud kitchen.

The newly re-vamped area will be fantastic once complete and will provide a wonderful space for children to enjoy. You can  help West Berks Mencap complete the project by making a donation. Just click on the link below and follow the instructions:
