We have funding!

We are so delighted to hear that we have bagged £2000 from a Tesco funding scheme. Thank you to everyone who voted for us & to Tesco & Groundworks who launched this ‘Bags of Help’ funding initiative – all the money was donated by the 5p bag scheme.

So excited that we can now go ahead with our plans to build a secure tool shed on site to store all our tools so we no longer have to carry the tools to the site every time. Besides that the money will go on volunteer training, fun public events, more tools & gloves, wheel barrows (once our shed is built).

If there are any other community groups out there seeking funding to develop outdoor spaces to benefit their local community, this is a great grant to apply for as they are awarding to three groups in each region every month.  Visit http://www.tesco.com/bagsofhelp Since launching in 2015, Bags of Help has awarded more than £25 million across more than 3,000 local projects. So glad that we are one of them.

This is how we get the tools to the orchard every time. So happy we now have the money to get a tool shed.
