A Derbyshire garden has been transformed into a pink paradise for a young girl with an incurable medical condition, thanks to a LazyLawn installation.
LazyLawn, the UK’s leading artificial turf specialists, donated and installed pink grass for a seven-year-old girl suffering from an unnamed neurodegenerative disease.
Mia Parnell from Hatton, developed symptoms two years ago which have since affected her brain and mobility, meaning simple day-to-day activities are now a struggle. Her mother Sarah Parnell, 38, has been fundraising for a sensory garden as the original garden was unsafe for Mia to play in.
After seeing LazyLawn roll out the pink turf for Wear it Pink day last October, and with pink being Mia’s favourite colour, Sarah approached LazyLawn for support.
As well as donating 24 square meters of their ‘Funky’ range, the team at LazyLawn pulled together Derbyshire-based home and trade merchants, who donated supplies and carried out the labour on the day.
Sarah said: “What was an unsafe garden that Mia couldn’t use is now a solid, flat and safe place for her to hang out with her friends.
“The guys at LazyLawn have changed Mia’s life. It was all done by them and I didn’t have to lift a finger! It’s definitely been one less stress for us.”
Amanda Ford, from LazyLawn Derbyshire said: “We orchestrated the local businesses and got them all on board.
“From the workmen, grass and ground supplies, we took control of the whole job, which was very close to our hearts and we were glad to be able to help Mia and her family.”
Andy Driver, Marketing Director at LazyLawn said: “We are always keen to get involved with good causes and have previously used our Funky Pink product to help support and promote the Wear it Pink, Breast Cancer Campaign.”
Mia’s mum, Sarah is now fundraising for sensory toys to go on the pink LazyLawn turf.
