What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


Following many visits to Lincolnshire hospitals Emmy and I became really depressed seeing the state of the grounds. We are passionate gardeners and walking past unloved desolated patches of ground was really sad. It doesn't matter what reason takes you to hospital, but it is always an anxious one.

Both of us have seen first hand the benefits of being outside and gardening with volunteers whilst working at Belvoir Castle. We decided to set up the Charity G.R.O.W. Gardens Restore Our Wellbeing to do something about it.

There is increasing evidence that exposure to plants and green space, and particularly to gardening, is beneficial to mental and physical wellbeing.

Once our gardens are completed a volunteer program will be put in place and monitored, so the gardens remain in good condition, whilst helping rehabilitate many along the way.

This October we complete our first garden outside ward 6 and are now raising funds for the Outpatients garden which will be visited by day patients

G.R.O.W. Please join us by supporting our efforts to make a measurable difference in the lives of others.

    As you can see we are making terrific progress - nearly all the Setts are in. Now we have to lay hardcore, then tarmac and then the resin. I think you will all agree with me that Ian Batchelor Landscapes are doing an incredible job.

    Thank you all very much for your donations, we are doing so well that landscaping the first garden is due to start next month, July. Because we have received tremendous support for the gardens at Grantham hospital we are already looking at the next project. This is a small garden next to Outpatients. The survey has been done and as soon as we have a design we will share this with you. Keep spreading the word everyone so we can make Grantham Hospital, the leading hospital for #health and #wellbeing.

    Today, GROW's bank account achieved the magic £5000 so at last we can apply for charity registration. Together with the large donation from The League of Friends of Grantham Hospital, we can proceed with the first garden. There are still a few i's to dot and t's to cross with ULHT, but we are nearly there!! MASSIVE THANK YOU to all who have contributed. Please spread the word so we can continue GROWING GARDENS in our hospitals!
