What is crowdfunding?

Story

Following many recent visits to Lincolnshire hospitals I became really depressed seeing the state of the grounds. I am a gardener and gardening is my passion - and seeing these desolated patches of ground really upset me. It doesn't matter what reason takes you to a hospital, but it is always an anxious one. The grounds are truly depressing. I talked to ULHT and they have no budget for gardens; not even money to mow the lawns!

There is increasing evidence that exposure to plants and green space, and particularly to gardening, is beneficial to mental and physical wellbeing. So Emmy, who works with me, and I decided to set up the Charity G.R.O.W. Gardens Restore Our Wellbeing. AND DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT.

Before we can be charity registered we have to raise £5000 which is why we have set up this fundraising site

At G.R.O.W. we're raising funds to promote wellbeing and improve mental health by providing opportunities for hospital patients to socialise, exercise and rehabilitate in natural surroundings.

Our plan is to design and build practical and tranquil garden settings for patients, visitors and staff of Lincolnshire hospitals.

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