On the 18th July 2018, Riana Development Network (RDN) was graced by the generosity of Lindt & Sprungli (UK) Ltd; a Feltham based chocolate company in the London Borough of Hounslow. 

Through their corporate social responsibility policy, Lindt & Sprungli (UK) Ltd donated over 300 hours of labour and tools for the RDN Schools/Community Gardening and Nature Area Outdoor learning programme at Waye Avenue Community Allotment and Cranford Primary School Nature Reserve Area.

At Waye Avenue Community Allotment, with the support of the London Borough of Hounslow, Tesco’s Bags of Help Initiative and Big Lottery Fund, RDN is involved with the community and schools through an intergenerational demonstration and Seedling/Nursery project. From this, the local community benefits from motivation, skills and seedlings and are able to grow vegetables all year round.

At Cranford Primary School, RDN, working closely with the headteacher and staff, are regenerating the Nature Reserve area for outdoor learning with a vision of making it a satellite outdoor learning space in the borough for other schools to utilise their limited space for a green project i.e. learning outside while growing vegetables.

Riana Development Network is a local charity in Hounslow which relies on the British value of voluntarism for its community activities. We have undertaken these projects with the help of volunteering services groundwork in Hounslow. RDN welcomes anyone with some spare time or any form of support for this programme.
