Everyman Club supports Best Futures with incredible donation

After over 60 years of operation, the Everyman Club of Great Grimsby has closed. The remaining monies has been donated to local good causes, and Best Futures Sensory Garden is one of them.  

Founders of Best Futures, Dawn and Rose Best, welcomed members from Everyman Club to the quiet village of Aylesby back in January 2024 to visit the proposed area for the new sensory garden and learn about the plans, ideas and process for the project moving forward. It was extremely cold outside, 2°C! So, the group retreated to the warm refuge of the nearby school and enjoyed a tour around the colourful and cosy classrooms.  

The Everyman club has donated an amazing £2,800.00 towards the Best Futures Sensory Garden, which will go straight into the pot to help with the fence building costs. “We are keen to make a start on the practical side of the sensory garden, it’s going to be a fantastic resource for the school” says Rose Best, Director of Best Futures Community Interest Company. She adds “The site is a large unused piece of agricultural land, we are excited to transform it into a peaceful space for our pupils to enjoy learning about nature, in nature. Growing vegetables, identifying species, outdoor reading, painting landscapes, simple holistic activities will take place here and enrich the learning opportunities we can offer to our pupils.”  

Dawn Best, Proprietor of Best Futures, expressing her gratitude to Everyman Club “We are extremely grateful for the support and kindness show by the Everyman Club members in their donation towards Best Futures School Sensory Garden. It is such a profound act of kindness and will massively impact the school and our offer for children with special educational needs.”  

Approved with conditions by the North East Lincolnshire Planning Department in April 2023, the sensory garden is due to be launched this summer.
