FACE success 

We will be holding a plant sale at the end of May 2021 and we are planning to put on a Garden Gig in the summer, which will help raise morale and funds for struggling charities. 

 

Recently we have given £1,200 to the South London branch of MNDA which are really struggling to provide help to families facing this terrible diagnosis during lockdown. We've also offered funds to The Furzedown Project to help them reopen safely also Furzedown Youth Group and we are helping Penworthan Junior School create an urban garden in their playground.  

We now have a contactless card reader - this is available for any local groups or charities to borrow  - please get in touch!

Our events and support from businesses like The Rose & Crown have all helped make this success possible. And  Heyland & Whittle (who used to live in Furzedown) donate their wonderful products which means 100% of what we sell goes to local charities. 

We are always looking for new sponsors, raffle prizes and people to help join the fundraising fun!

Thank you...

Looking forward to better times...

This crisis has put a stop to our fundraising events but we know a lot of local charities are really struggling.

We have created a special #justgiving page for those who'd like to support our local South London MNDA branch who have been particularly affected by this crisis:

Who we're helping...
We are helping Penworthan Junior School create an Urban Garden in 2021. In 2019 we built a set of five big planters to enhance the bare playground of Faylands, a local child care facility

Stuart, who makes the lovely Furzedown Window boxes which are for sale at The Big Day Out, has designed and hand-made these fantastic wooden planters, in which the toddlers and their families are enjoying growing flowers, fresh fruit and vegetables - a fun and delicious way to learn about healthy eating and where food comes from!

  • Our neighbour Gareth died from MND so we're raising money for the local South London Motor Neurone Disease Association that helped him and his family.

  • We are helping The Furzedown Youth Club and supporting their new after-school drop-in initiative. Also paid for a First aid course, indoor activities and bought a vacuum cleaner. 

  • Thanks to Furzedown, St George's Hospital  are  providing a special chill-out area for young people undergoing cancer treatment 

  • We have helped the local Multiple Sclerosis group set up a special chair-based weekly yoga class in Wandsworth

  • We have provided planters for a local nursery playground

  • As well as sponsoring their minibus, we have provided The Furzedown Project with a life-saving defibrillator and media resources to enhance their fitness programmes and community talks plus ongoing support for their website.

  • We have paid to train four specialist swimming volunteers for handicapped children in Wandsworth

  • We supported a half-term cookery course at The Graveney Canteen

  • We also make regular donations to Furzedown Foodbank for items not donated 

  • and to Teens Unite.

We've fundraised for St George's Hospital to create a much needed area for YOUNG PEOPLE WITH CANCER; local fundraising initiatives have helped us reach the target!
