Weʼre raising £50,000 to Restoration of Iden Manor nursing home Orangery appeal (RIMO)- Phase 1
- Staplehurst, Tonbridge, 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.
Our appeal is to raise funds to restore the architecturally unique Orangery which is part of this historically important building.
The Orangery historically was a room or dedicated building on the grounds of a fashionable residents in the 17th to the 19th centuries where oranges, exotic plants and other fruit trees were protected during the winter whilst providing a sense of opulence and a sense of space and much-needed light for residents. A refuge from the conditions outside.
It is this sense Victorian charm that we want to encourage for residents of Iden Manor, providing a focal point for activities including horticulture, games and exercises.
Additionally we hope it can become venue for community events in Staplehurst. We want to encourage people, and businesses, from the village to come and see the orangery and enjoy it also.
The restoration of this unique and historical room would add an extra dimension to this beautiful and much-loved building.
