Community Impact Award winners - Ayrshire Team 150
Kris Moyles said:
“More than 30 of us took part on Team 150. It was a pretty large group, but we all wanted the same thing: a better life.
“Staff at Doonfoot Primary School in Ayr approached us to ask if we could help with their garden. They have a Base at the school that looks after children on the autistic spectrum and had wanted to build a sensory garden for ages, but didn't have the money.
They gave us their wish-list and we started calling up local companies asking them to donate materials for it.
"We built a massive wooden tepee and a fence around the garden, which we also painted; we installed sensory flower beds, made a willow tunnel, interactive textured structures and a quiet area with swings and a sand pit; and we linked everything up by laying a sensory path. It looked really cool.

“Building a sensory garden for the autistic base at Doonfoot Primary was pretty big for me personally because I’m autistic, so it was something quite close to my heart.”
“Seeing the kids out playing in the garden and being so excited to play in it felt really good.”
