Boursin, the UK’s speciality cheese , is supporting Thrive charity in the renovation of the Battersea Herb Garden.

The launch event celebrating the official opening of the renovated gardens kicked off with volunteers from brand owner Bel UK getting involved with the renovation of the herb garden and a speech given by Rosie Boycott, Chair of London Food Board.

The event which took place on the 14th July in a nod to Boursin’s French origins culminated with a selection of Boursin products for all to enjoy at lunchtime.

Thanks to the support from Boursin, Thrive has been able to upgrade and enhance the London park herb garden by redesigning its garden beds, which display culinary, medicinal and therapeutic herbs and spices.

The gardening programme has been designed to enable more than 50 disabled Londoners to develop the skills they need to grow, display and sell herbs and spices, as well as attract public interest in Thrive’s work and generating income for the charity.

Alessandra Laraud, brand manager at Boursin, said:

“We’re very proud to be supporting Thrive this year as they continue their great work in the community.

“The Herb Garden is an incredible initiative that’s making a real difference to those touched by disability and ill health in the local area.”

Kathryn Rossiter, CEO at Thrive said: “We are thrilled with this cash injection and support from Boursin, which has enabled us to establish a new working herbs and spices retail operation, which helps our gardeners and generates income for the charity.”
