Elgin’s Greenfingers group has offered its services to work on a special garden in the memory of Logan Main who died from an aggressive childhood cancer.
The garden has been in existence for five years and was created by Logan’s Fund, a charity created in the nine-year-old’s memory.
Logan attended the Jack n Jills nursery in Elgin for four months before being diagnosed. His siblings Lachlan and Elisha are following in their brothers footsteps by going to the centre.
The idea behind the nursery garden was that Logan’s Fund and family wanted to give something back to Jack n Jills for all the support they gave during Logan’s illness.
Fund chairman Cameron Mackintosh said: “We always involve the children who attend Jack n Jills as well as the After School Club in the creation of the garden each year as we see it as their garden and the children always ask lovely questions about Logan with a genuine interest.
“Since his death rainbows have become synonymous with Logan and the reason for this was when the children at Jack n Jills were told of Logan’s passing they were told that when they see a rainbow to think of Logan.
“I don’t think Lynn and her staff could ever have anticipated how much that little piece of advice could have carried way beyond the gates of Jack n Jills and is used as much now by all who knew and loved Logan.”
Greenfingers offers training and work experience to adults who often have limited access to further education, training or employment.
Group co-ordinator Menita Roberts said: “Greenfingers were delighted to be approached by Logan’s Fund to ask if they could step in and help with Logan’s rainbow based at the nursery.
“The trainees will produce, plant and maintain the floral rainbow in the memory of Logan.
“This is an exciting time for Greenfingers and we are very proud to become supporters of Logan’s Fund.”
