Sponsored fast for Eastbourne Allotments Community project raises £1910 so far!
Good news and a big thank you to allotment tenant Mori Tehrani! Mori heard of our fund raising through the Eastbourne Local Lottery for our latest project. He volunteered to do a 3 day fast to help raise money for the community plot that is planned for our Allotment site in the middle of the town. To date he has raised £1910 through the just giving page. And he has given his permission for his challenge to be announced on our website to see if we can reach the target of £3000.Use the link to visit the just giving page or hand your donation in to the Allotment office. More details below on the Community Allotment project for Gorringe road site.
I am undertaking an 80 hour fast (just occasional drink of water) for this cause which is very close my own heart/mind.
Pls help with donating what you can afford and also please forward the link to others who you may think care about such issues in our society and the world we live in.
We need your help so we can continue to offer and expand our community service! Eastbourne allotments and the Society are accessible to all in Eastbourne through our allotment plots, community allotment plots and the Society shop and social activities.
I need your help to expand and offer more to the town. The allotment society has big ideas and aspirations to be of greater use to the wider community and share our fantastic facilities to the people of Eastbourne.
It is well known that outdoor activity improves wellbeing for people of all ages. Great benefits can be gained physically, mentally and emotionally due to having and tending an allotment plot. Being a member of a community plot additionally offers a cure to feelings of isolation and loneliness, something that has been recognised as a growing problem in our towns today.
There are great learning opportunities for young and old and tending a plot can bring the young and old together in a shared activity and many families enjoy allotment gardening.
We currently have a goal of creating a community plot with the aim of reducing feelings of isolation that some in the town feel. This problem being mainly found in the elderly but studies have shown that the youth in the town are also not immune to feelings of loneliness. So this facility would be for all age groups.
I would like to provide funding for a community hut and greenhouse and poly-tunnel as well as the growing space. This would be in the heart of the town at the Gorringe Road Group site, on the bus route and accessible to all who would like to join.
Kindest Regards and thank you!
Hedgehogs spotted on the allotments sites!
This time of year, when thoughts turn to clearing and tidying up, please check for hedgehogs in your compost bins before disturbing and in bonfires before lighting.
