A Hitchin-based charity is to turn the garden behind its shop into a space for the whole community with the help of a £10,000 grant.
The windfall from the Big Lottery Fund will see Humanitas transform the garden behind its Bucklersbury headquarters so it can be used for a community herb garden, food, art and music events and more.
Humanitas chief executive and co-founder Sarah Wade said: “We are thrilled to have been given the funds to completely overhaul our garden, which will be a beautiful outdoor space in the centre of town.
“Most people wouldn’t know it was here, but it is a real sanctuary and we want to share it with the Hitchin community and raise funds for our projects at the same time.”
Humanitas hope the new space will be ready by the summer. If you’re interested in hiring it or supporting the charity, contact email@example.com.
