Special thanks to our sponsors

Gardening vanWe would like to express our sincere thanks to the sponsors of our Gardening Service, Mountjoy Building & Maintenance and Havant Mowers and Garden Machinery who have generously donated vans and other equipment to Age Uk Portsmouth. Without the kind support and sponsorship of these organisations it would not have been possible for us to set up our Gardening Service for the older people of Portsmouth.
