Cherry Tree Nursery

Our 2021 Nominated Charities


This year Family Fest is proud to be supporting the charities 'Cherry Tree Nursery' and 'YMCA Bournemouth' which links into our 2021 theme, Mindfulness. With both of these charities local, they have the resources and teams in place to support you where it is needed most.

Cherry Tree Nursery


The charity 'Cherry Tree Nursery' is your local plant nursery - 'caring for people, caring for plants'.


The charity was set up to provide sheltered work rehabilitation, in a supportive but realistic working environment, for people with severe and enduring mental illness. The charity’s aim is to create a loving community for people who often feel frightened, lonely, isolated, and powerless.

The volunteers find the nursery a safe and non-threatening place to work, where they can receive support from staff, gain strength from developing friendships with each other, share problems and experiences, and build social networks through working together.

Cherry Tree Nursery will be attending our two-day festival when you will be able to meet the team and find out more about their amazing work. We will also be collecting donations across the weekend, and any donation will be greatly appreciated.
