J. Parker's In the Community
We love to collaborate with charities and local companies, providing rich industry knowledge and supplies to whatever project you’re planning. Check out some of our charity partners below.
Mid Cheshire Beekeepers
Mid-Cheshire Bee Committee helps spread awareness of the importance of pollinators, as well as providing keen participants with the opportunity for mentorship and training on beekeeping. In 2023, our goal is to help boost their training program and fund the cost of their first beehive at their training site in Northwich - plus regular monthly donations to help them continue their beekeeping efforts. Watch this space for regular updates.
J. Parker’s is partnering with Garden Needs, a dedicated community group based in Salford that supports the local community through horticulture. Their goal? To connect people with nature and gardening, promoting a healthier and happier lifestyle. This service is free to Salford-based residents, providing them with peer support and outdoor activities. J. Parker’s will provide plants like trees and shrubs, as well as regular support on ongoing projects (like building a new plant border) and knowledge sharing. This long-term project will help share awareness for their cause and positively impact the mental health of local residents as they access the service. Stay tuned for further updates as this project continues.
Home Start is a community-based support group that helps new parents settle into their new lifestyle. Trained volunteers visit families regularly, all of whom know how hard parenting can be at times, to provide advice and guidance where needed. J. Parker’s will soon assist with fundraising and projects to show how gardening can support local families. Stay tuned for more updates as this collaboration is still in its infancy.
