The Recovery Tree's projects include TWIGS gardens, the Olive tree café and Pinecones in Pinehurst.

The local charity will be celebrating the work and achievements of its two main projects on Thursday 7 October, at 4pm. 

The event for press and supporters, will be held at the Olive Tree Cafe which is based in Cheney Manor Garden Centre. 

This Recovery Tree Charity is responsible for the following projects:

TWIGS (Therapeutic Work In Gardening Swindon) – offering opportunities for people experiencing mental health problems to regain confidence and self esteem through learning new skills and participating in therapeutic activities. This project has been running for over 20 years.

The Olive Tree Café – preserving and protecting the good mental health of people on the road to recovery by providing them with positive, work-related opportunities in a café open to the public in order to take them a step nearer the world of work. This project has been running for 11 years.

There have also been recent developments at Pinecones, in Pinehurst - designed to support and benefit the people in the area.

Supporters of the charity projects and members of the press will listen to two short speeches, have opportunities to speak to staff, volunteers and trustees, and have a tour of the wonderful TWIGS gardens.
