We would like solar-generated electricity to pump water for our plants, to charge batteries for tools and craft equipment, to provide refreshments to visitors and presentations through a projector.

How this cause brings people in the community together

We will offer a greater range of activities and increase opening times. Providing hot refreshments to volunteers and visitors encourages social interaction and aids mental and physical wellbeing. For example, manning our friendship bench, offering children soup at a holiday club, or a hot drink to an art group. Offering workshop activities with power tools targets isolated or vulnerable adults.
