Based in Epsom, Surrey, The Old Moat Garden Centre and Café has achieved a tremendous amount of positive change in the past two years. A bold £850,000 re-development plan was agreed with its parent charity, Richmond Fellowship* following the end of NHS funding. Thanks to the belief and determination of a small team of dedicated staff, it's now been delivered - with minimal disruption to services and with outstandingly good results. A 55% year-on-year growth in revenue has been achieved since the re-development, via a more appealing offering for existing customers, stronger promotion and new events to bring in new faces.
The wonderful result is that The Old Moat can continue with its core work and reason for being - supporting people living with mental ill health. The future of this unique and highly valued outlet seems secure once again - much to the relief of people we support, staff, volunteers and of course our lovely customers, old and new.
