Mr Ronald Sidney Berry


"Ron loved his garden and was never happier than when he was outside pottering. He would have enjoyed the idea of gardening being used to enrich the lives of people in need, which is what the THRIVE charity does. They use gardening to bring about positive changes in the lives of people living with disabilities or ill-health, or who are isolated, disadvantaged or vulnerable"

If possible, bright clothing is encouraged, just like the colours Ron would have in his garden.

"Thank you"
