A wheelchair user in North Yorkshire has spoken of her joy at being able to access her home garden again following a renovation project.

Helmsley resident June Ramshaw decided to get in touch with her local Citizen Advice Bureau (CAB) and seek help and advice with her garden after an operation two years ago left her confined to a wheelchair, gazetteherald.co.uk reported.

As Ms Ramshaw had previously worked in the retail trade, the CAB chose to get in touch with the Retail Trust, national occupational charity, as well as local charity the Ryedale Lions Club.

According to the news website, thanks to a £500 donation from the Retail Trust and manpower from members of the Lions, Mrs Ramshaw's garden has now been transformed to allow her access in her wheelchair.

"I am amazed that two local charities, working together in this way, have managed to transform a space that was useless to me into a garden that I can get around in my wheelchair," she said.

Homeowners and organisations seeking to improve garden areas can also choose to erect stylish garden buildings like a garden office or summer house. Members of the charities and local community also donated various items to the garden project including rose bushes and paving slabs.
