SMART flower stall extends opening hours

The flower stall run by local mental health charity SMART (Saint Mary Abbots Rehabilitation and Training) is a familiar sight at Chelsea and Westminster hospital.

Its days of operation have recently been increased from two to four days per week – it is now open between 12 noon and 3:30pm from Tuesday to Friday—and when you buy your flowers from the stall, you are helping to support a local charity.

Amelia Mustapha, Director of the charity, explains: “SMART is a mental health charity with a difference. We’ve been running for just over 25 years, promoting mental health through purposeful activity. We offer a range of supported work and training opportunities in a friendly and enabling environment to anyone affected by mental ill health.

“People build both practical and personal skills, gaining experience, confidence and friends. Working 1:1 with individuals we help them to find work and training outside SMART and reconnect people with their community through our programme of social events.

“If you need any kind of flower or plant arrangement do pop along to our stall, call 020 7376 4668 or email info@smartlondon.org.uk to place an order. We can deliver to local addresses too.”
