Happy New Year!

2017 happy new year on vintage blur festive bokeh light background.

Well another year has come and gone and we would like to wish all of our clients, customers and supporters a very Happy New Year for 2017! 2016 was a very important year for us as we celebrated our 20 year anniversary as a charity and social enterprise. We marked the occasion by hosting a special birthday garden party which was attended by many friends and supporters.


The past twelve months have seen Silver Birch go from strength to strength, securing funding for our new Learning & Development Hub which will be a much valued resource for all of our clients.

We also made further investment in our vegetable cultivation team, and successfully piloted the sale of many vegetables at our annual spring sale! Building a new polytunnel on site will enable us to grow our selection of veg, even in inclement weather.


Our success would not be possible if it wasn’t for the support of all of our clients, funders and stakeholders so thank you for another fantastic year!
