Donate to us

As a charity providing a resource for our local community, a place for people of all ages to learn and develop, and a centre supporting both formal and informal education, we need all the help we can get.

By making a one off donation you are providing us with the means to open our doors to welcome people, support our volunteers, engage with local schools and provide resources for learning.

A donation of £10 funds plants, flowers, vegetables and bulbs for our community garden. Our garden provides a welcoming and tranquil space for visitors to enjoy and feel refreshed, locally the garden will be a haven in the neighbourhood for the community to enjoy. Our garden also provides allotment beds for our local schools who visit regularly, planting and weeding and learning about growing their own food. Our garden is entirely designed and cared for by an amazing team of volunteers.

A donation of £25 funds resources and materials for us to deliver a week of family activities. These create the opportunity for families to spend quality time together, to learn, share and to grow in a welcoming, informal context. Over the October half term we welcomed over 110 children and their families for map making and pumpkin carving.

A donation of £50 enables us to develop and deliver a fun and interactive learning session for schools and special needs groups.

A donation of £500 would allow us to run this special place for a day, welcome visitors, facilitate learning opportunities, plan future workshops, and be the community resource that we are.
