STIGA donates mowers and tools to domestic abuse charity

STIGA donates mowers and tools to domestic abuse charity: The STIGA team have been offering their support to a number of domestic abuse charities. Domestic abuse has been steadily rising with the combination of a global pandemic and the cost-of-living crisis being two of the reasons behind this increase.

It is well documented that gardening can help substantially to improve both physical and mental well-being.  With this in mind, STIGA reached out to a number of charities offering them mowers and gardening tools for those victims in their care.

Coventry Haven Women’s Aid were the first to accept the offer of free gardening products.  The charity was founded in 1972 as a women’s group and have grown to become a small, community-based, grass roots, registered charity which is run by women for women.  They provide safe housing and a range of support services, before, during and after leaving their abusive partner/family member.

A Coventry Haven spokesperson said, “Thank you to STIGA for the kind donation of gardening equipment and for thinking of us; your support plays a crucial role in helping our residents in refuge heal and thrive. At Coventry Haven Women’s Aid, we provide essential support to survivors of Domestic Abuse, offering safe refuge accommodation, counselling, and advocacy services. Our mission is to empower women and children to rebuild their lives free from fear, violence and abuse.”  They continued “Gardening equipment will significantly enhance the well-being of our residents in our refuges. Gardening provides therapeutic benefits, helping survivors reduce stress, build confidence, and foster a sense of accomplishment. It offers a peaceful and productive activity that promotes mental health and physical well-being. Creating and tending to gardens will also help build a supportive community among residents, encouraging teamwork and mutual support.
Thank you for making a difference in their lives and for contributing to a nurturing and empowering environment.

STIGA donated three Collector 136e kit mowers and two HT 300e Kit hedge trimmers to the charity.
