Residents at The Ridings care home in Banbury enjoyed a community gardening event with Community Matters volunteers from Waitrose in Brackley recently.

The event saw volunteers roll up their sleeves and take part in a gardening club activity along with residents and their families.

Activity Co-ordinator Claire Blow said: "Many residents have fond memories of tending to their own gardens in the past and so have very much enjoyed the Gardening Club.

“The fresh herbs we are growing will be used by our chefs in the kitchen."

The Ridings was nominated as one of Brackley Waitrose's Community Matters Charities for the month of May and shoppers raised £373 for the home's Community Gardening Club.
