WOW WOW WOW!!!
Our crowdfunding project ended today and we have been absolutely overjoyed at the amount of wonderful people who have pledged / donated to our allotment group project. We want to extend a HUGE thank you to all the members, volunteers, trustees, staff, external partners and everyone else who has kindly donated, promoted, attended our fundraising events and put the word out about this project,
We smashed our initial target of £1000 and ended up so close to our stretch target finishing on £1415! What this means is that we are able to pay for a 6 week ‘Introduction to growing’ course delivered by our friends @sowthecity and we will also be able tool up our allotment group when it is up and running in early spring.
In the longer term this will provide the centre and our members with produce grown by the group to be harvested and end up being used by our new café lead Lisa in our Wednesday lunch service. This is a low cost hot vegetarian meal provided every week for members, staff and volunteers.
If you are interested in volunteering with us at CLC and getting involved in the allotment / garden projects then please get in touch with us through the link below.
On Friday 1st December we held a table top sale at the Creative Living Centre to raise funds towards some of the many activities we run on a daily basis. Thanks to the hard work of the team and the support of members of the Creative Living Centre and those in the community, combined with another fundraising activity, so far we have managed to raise £352.74!
We have several other fundraising activities planned over the coming months including a Guitar concert from Jean with the splinter guitar group so it would be wonderful if you could support us.
We also have our crowdfunder, details of which can be found here and donations made directly through this will go towards our allotment and be DOUBLED!
Read a small introduction to our allotment project here!
One of our projects is to improve mental health through gardening, planting, growing and learning about sustainability and the environment. We would like to fund some specific training for members, staff & volunteers so that we can form an allotment group in the new year. We also need to purchase some new equipment to make sure we have everything we need for a successful growing season in 2024!
