Weʼre raising £200 to help set up a community food garden
- Newcastle-under-Lyme, UK
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Recently the Newcastle Borough council spent thousands of pounds building a community food garden in the heart of Chesterton for children and young people within the area. Due to cuts this area has had to be closed, and has since become over grown and unusable. I am voluntarily stepping up to re-open the garden, to allow local schools, nurseries and other groups to come along and get involved. Activities such as growing their own food, exploring fauna and flora and carrying out group projects to support our eco-system and learn about sustainability.

About the fundraiser
I am a passionate early years educator, with experience with all ages of children and young people. I believe being outside is the best environment for learning and there is a desperate need to engage children with the pleasure of outdoor activities and a healthy lifestyle.
