How you can help us?
Abbey Physic Community Garden is funded entirely by grants, donations and legacies.
In 2016 we received a generous grant from The National Lottery Reaching Communities Fund which enabled us to set up our community kitchen, horticulture training and the Groundforce outreach work.
To cover the costs of running the garden and to enable these valuable programmes to continue and to evolve, reaching even more people in the community we need to secure new sources of income.
Here is how you can help:

Unlike other online donation services, Local Giving do not take a percentage of your donation as a fee, instead every penny goes to support the work of the Abbey Physic Community Garden.
Don't forget, if you are a UK tax payer, we can claim an extra amount based on your donation (it doesn't cost you more) - Just fill in the Gift Aid form wherever you are offered them, also available by downloading here (see page 2 of the download):
BECOME A MEMBER/VOLUNTEER
Annual membership costs just £15. Becoming a member of the garden means you can use our services and visit the garden whenever you need.
Using the payment box above, there are some extra options to contribute more than the basic fee if you so choose.
Select any of these options to become a member/volunteer, there is no difference in entitlement, but larger donations help us to do more for everyone.
After subscribing through Paypal, you can download and print out the membership form using the button below. If you do not have access to a printer we have copies of the form at the garden.
Other ways to help:
Sponsoring means you choose where your donation goes – a new garden bench, supporting one of our members to gain qualifications, add your name to one of our flower beds – the choice is yours. When you make a Donation via the big button above, you should be offered the chance when paying to add a message to indicate any preferences or choices you have for how your donation should be used.
Alternatively, you can always get in touch with us by phone, email or in person to let us know how you'd like to offer your sponsor support
Perhaps you would like to jump out of a plane, shave your hair off, or run a marathon to raise funds for us?
If so, you can create a page through Just Giving, Wonderful.org or similar services and if you get in touch with us we can help you with publicity material etc.
LEAVE A LASTING LEGACY
Leaving a gift in your Will, whether a fixed amount or a percentage of your estate, is a generous and enduring way to help us continue to provide support for vulnerable people - it will cost you nothing during your lifetime. A solicitor can help you to make or update your Will.
