Fundraising in the Memory of Jack Leaning
Tragically in March 2017 Andrew & Liz lost their beautiful son Jack due to a short period of mental illness at the age of 23. In order to turn their darkest days into brighter ones for others in similar situations, Jack’s family & friends have been raising money for the mental health charity Mind & the local charity Restore who helped Jack when he was struggling.
We have completed many events & have raised an amazing amount of money for both charities, we are grateful to all our amazing friends and customers who have supported us so far and for future events - your kindness means so much to us, please help in any way you can.

Jack’s Beans 2019
“Jacks Beans “ were again on the look out for new loving homes this year and every single plant found its way to someones garden.
We found a box of over 300 black shiny beans shortly after Jack passed in 2017. Incredibly only one single bean germinated and we grew it in a big pot on our patio. We took lots of care to make sure it thrived and wasn't attacked by slugs and pests. Last year we gave away 500 bean plants and this year we gave away over 1000 plants. These plants were free but we asked for a small donation for Mind and Restore. Thank you to your kind donations we raised £504.96 for Mind and £186.91 for Restore.
Jack was a kind and compassionate young man with everything to live for .He was an accomplished tree surgeon having trained at Pershore but sadly lost his struggle against depression and a short mental illness . He was just 23 and his beautiful smile will be remembered by all those whose lives he touched in his short life.
