Thousands of pounds could be spent on a Sowerby Bridge sensory garden to help tackle the growing social isolation issue amongst our elderly.

Environmental charity, Groundwork, has announced it will unlock a £10,000 ‘treasure chest’ in their X Marks the Spot campaign - encouraging people to celebrate treasured spaces in their community for the benefit of people’s health and wellbeing.

But to release the cash, the community must do some fundraising. For every £1 raised, Groundwork will match fund this by £2; up to a maximum of £5,000.
