A gardening scheme for people with learning disabilities may have to close unless more funding can be found to salvage it.
The Charnwood Gardening Project, based in Loughborough, helps adults with physical and mental difficulties, to learn horticulture skills, make friends, and gain confidence.
Changes to social care funding in recent years means the project can no longer employ a full-time worker, and clients that currently use it will have to pay if they want to continue gardening.
Fran Ochalek has been coming to the allotments for the last two years, since he went blind.
Fran says they would all be "gutted" if the project has to fold through lack of money.
He says it's a lifeline for all of them.
