About

In July 2018 Susie  embarked on a white water kayaking trip in the French Alps to raise over £10,000 for the Blackthorn Trust. Most people wouldn’t embark on this kind of adventure without having spent at least a couple of years learning the necessary techniques, whereas Susie had just 6 months to prepare herself. The money raised has contributed to the building of a new 'Healing Minds' garden, a beautiful and peaceful space, generously designed by landscape architect Marian Boswall, which will benefit not only our service users but also the local community. To find out more about how this idea came into being read the blog.
