In addition to fundraising events, we also rely on the generosity of individuals and grant-making organisations to fund our work. With your help, we can continue to support an amazing team of tutors and volunteers as well as maintain and improve our facilities.
BE A VOLUNTEER AT HGP
Volunteers play a crucial part in Herefordshire Growing Point’s work. Our outstanding team of volunteers has been recognised by the Queens Award for Voluntary Service. We always need more people to help the charity flourish and our clients to enjoy the many benefits of gardening. There are lots of ways to contribute as a volunteer, including:
- Working one to one with an individual gardener
- Helping a group of gardeners
- Maintenance of the Demonstration Garden
- Driving clients in our people carrier
- Lending a hand on occasions such as garden visits and fundraising events
Please send us an email if you are interested in finding out more about volunteering, and the type of help you could offer. Our charity manager, Julian Reeves will respond. We are very grateful for your interest. Thank you!
BECOME A FRIEND OF HGP
We hope you will consider becoming a Friend, a valued member of the Growing Point family, and an active supporter of your local community.
- You will receive news updates from us
- You will receive invitations to key events in the HGP calendar.
- You will receive discounted rates to special events.
- You will have the opportunity to share your time or your skills to help us in the Demonstration Garden, at events, or in other areas of our work, but this is entirely optional!
Our Friends provide very practical help to some of the most vulnerable members of our society.
MAKE A DONATION TO HGP
You can make a donation to Herefordshire Growing Point through our on-line giving page on Givey. This platform is cost free for the charity so 100% of your donation comes direct to us.
You can also raise money on our behalf through a sponsored walk, cake sale or something similar. Givey allows you set up your own fundraising page. Please email us to let us know what you are planning and we may be able to help publicise your campaign.
Thank you for your interest and funding our work.
LEAVE A LEGACY FOR HGP
Leaving a legacy to Herefordshire Growing Point would help the charity continue its important therapeutic work in the county. If you have already made a Will, a short codicil can be added, stating the amount you would like to leave to the charity. If you haven’t yet made a Will, everyone at Herefordshire Growing Point would be extremely grateful if you were to include us amongst any legacies.
Either way, it is important that you give the full name of the charity, the address and charity number. It is also recommended that you consult a solicitor or financial adviser.
Any legacy of whatever size would be of immense value to us, and we are most grateful for your thoughtfulness.
Please email our Chairman, Laura Hone, if you are interested in finding out more about leaving a legacy. Thank you very much for getting in touch with us.
