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.
Ufford Street Gardens are looking a little worn and Lambeth Parks due to cut backs will offer no support with the exception of Grass Cutting. Local residents wish to see improvements and have agreed to form an Association to raise funds to carry out work.
In the 18th century open ground here was known as Chalcroft Meadow, part of the Manor of Lambeth, owned by the Ecclesiastical Commissioners. In the early-19th century the area began to be built on by a Mr Samuel Short, who is recalled in a local street name. By 1901 the houses needed rebuilding and the Ecclesiastical Commissioners decided that part should also be set aside as public open space. Lambeth Borough Council agreed and laid out Ufford Street Recreation Ground, which was transferred to them by the Commissioners in 1907
We are trying to arrange volunteer days but need urgently to raise funds to purchase tools, fencing and plants .
Please support us to save this Historic Garden which is set in a Conservation area

Good luck with your fundraising. A very worthwhile cause to help a community asset. Donating as a 'thank you' to the Rec where I spent many happy hours playing football in the 1970s !
