The daughter of a man who suffers from dementia has raised more than £3,000 to transform the garden of his care home – and now she needs help to get the work done.

If you can help Lynne Taylor in her mission, head to Cherry Orchard care home in Richard Ryan Place, Dagenham, at 8am on Saturday next week.

Volunteers are asked to bring tools (hand or battery-powered) or paintbrushes, if possible.

Staff from Cherry Orchard will be providing tea, coffee and sandwiches for helpers throughout the day.
