Have you started your gardening spring clean?!

This week we are working together with Arthritis Research UK to help Mature Times readers who are living with joint pain, or who know someone who is, to keep gardening. If you want to find out more about how Arthritis Research UK could help you or how you can join us in our fight against arthritis, go to www.arthritisresearchuk.org/gardening

Arthritis Research UK are the charity leading the fight against arthritis. Living with arthritis and joint pain can have a huge impact on people’s lives, stopping them from doing things that many of us take for granted, like walking to the shops, making a cup of tea or gardening.

Arthritis Research UK are dedicated to funding research to find better treatments for people living in pain. Through our information and advice, we help people to manage their pain and not let it stop them from living the life they want.

Gardening is a great form of exercise. Make it easier by protecting your joints and helping yourself. We have a fantastic blogger – Niki Preston, the Two Fingered Gardener, who will be blogging for us all week on recommended things to do to ensure a beautiful garden, with or without the pain of arthritis!
