My Best Self 

Every day at Mires Beck our service users strive to be the best that they can be. Even on the coldest days, people arrive at our horticultural nursery ready to get involved in whatever tasks we have planned for them. The enthusiasm with which our trainees approach life is inspiring and we could not be prouder than when someone is growing in ability and confidence. Our staff and volunteers are always ready to give the best of themselves to ensure everyone has the best day possible and are an absolute credit to society. All year round we are engaged in wonderful work with our service users producing plants and trees and developing our beautiful rural site for all who visit. 
To honour our people and commit to improving their lives, we want to make sure that we give everyone involved in the charity every opportunity to thrive and succeed in their efforts to achieve their best results and we need you to help us deliver the best service that we can. Please be inspired by our example and see ideas of what you can do on our How To Get Involved page and have a  
'Best Self Day' for someone who needs your help. 
At the nursery, each week we will be setting a goal for one of our teams and will raise funds through our own friends and family for each team to ensure we are helping our Best Selves fundraising campaign. 
We are challenging you to be the best that you can be for one day, or however many days you want to engage in helping another person less able than yourself and show the joy in your fund raising by getting friends and family involved as your supporters and sharing video /photographic content with us. Your testimonials are vital and any dedications in your evidence are key to inspiring others. We welcome as many photos, videos and testimonials from your efforts to help Mires Beck and this website will hopefully inspire you, bring you as much joy to watch as for those taking part, especially those benefitting from your best efforts to fundraise for us. 
This website is dedicated to fundraising for each service user for the following requirements to help us best enable all day to day operations at the nursery: 

One-to-One Training 

Digital Support 

Tools and Equipment 

Recreational Activities 

Craft Materials 


Community Events 

Nature and Conservation Activities 

What We Have Bought So Far With Your Fundraising 

With the £171.25 we raised at our My Best Steps fundraiser in May, we bought the wood to make portable benches for the service users, that our woodworkers have very kindly made for us with their amazing skills!

So please go ahead and get involved with whatever activity you excel in doing to be Your Best Self.
