SHOP TO SUPPORT US IN THE LATEST FUNDRAISING PERIOD
Co-op have included us in the latest fundraising period and £373 has been raised by shoppers so far.
The Latest Project
Initially we set a conservative fund raising target of £8,000 to replace the existing raised beds and do remedial works to our Centre's garden. Tesco awarded us £10K in December 2016 and so work will commence in the spring.
We hope that the monies raised by our first Co-op Local Community Fund bid will allow us to begin works in the form of our first two new raised vegetable beds with paved surrounds, a Polly Tunnel and two further smaller raised beds.
