Securing sufficient funding to provide services and facilities for local people is an ongoing task. We are constantly striving to :
- Keep our garden open for the whole community
- Support vulnerable families with young children
- Support adults with learning difficulties and mental health issues
- Give children access to nature and the chance to explore and discover
- Give people access to open space who don’t have their own garden
1. We need to raise a total of £15,500 to keep our weekend play open!
Please click here to support us: https://localgiving.org/appeal/children/
With your support, we will be able to continue with our weekend play program providing a safe place for children to meet and make friends in order to improve their well-being and their families and the wider community. The finances for the appeal are broken down as £15,000 to employ 2 play staff and £500 to pay the running costs of the facilities where we have developed our program and pay for equipment.
We deliver a program of environmental activities that give local children and young people a chance to develop an understanding and appreciation of the natural environment alongside sports activities, cooking, games, arts & crafts and more. Also, the children will participate in workshops/discussions (including parents/carers), directed to different age groups, mentored by the staff like E-safety: We give handouts for the children/Young people/parents to keep about and Anti-bullying workshop.
2. Our new crowdfunding campaign:
We’ve started a new crowdfunding campaign on https://www.crowd-velocity.co.uk/…/12:calt…/details/campaign
We are raising money to improve the standard of our cafe and provide it with much-needed equipment to enable us to serve our customers. We will purchase new kitchen equipment, utensils, blender, commercial fridge, and other items to help us do our work well in the kitchen. With this equipment, we can enable our volunteer to learn kitchen and cooking skills.

What our users say about us
“It’s very cramped at home, as we live in a one bed, coming here is a godsend” local parent
“I’ve been coming here since I was three and really miss it when I don’t come. I come mostly to use the pitch. I was spotted here for my football skills, now I play for Brentford” Kris aged 10
