Donated to Keep The Green Backyard Growing!’s £8500.00 Goal

We recently had a break-in. A number of items were stolen, including cash, tablets, tools, shop stock and more. In addition, damage was inflicted across site. Every building, door and lock on the site suffered damage and a number of items were broken beyond repair.

We've worked hard to secure the site and repairs have already begun. However, there is still some way to go to replace and repair everything, and make the necessary improvements to our security. As a small charity with limited funds, this is a devastating blow, and so we are asking our supporters to help out where they can.

Your donations will be used to replace items, repair damage and to improve security across the site.

All funds raised will be passed to The Green Backyard irrespective of whether our appeal target is reached, not reached or exceeded. If funds are being raised for a specific purpose and, for whatever reason, this purpose is no longer valid, the funds will be transferred to the charity for general use.

The charity

The Green Backyard is a community growing project in central Peterborough. From this urban base we have transformed a once-derelict former allotment site into a beautiful and productive green space. We promote sustainable lifestyles and raise awareness of environmental issues through practical demonstration and community involvement. With regular workdays, events and activities we bring people and communities across Peterborough together to be a bit greener, healthier and happier.

We are open four days per week (Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday: 11.00 - 16.00). You don’t need any gardening experience - just turn up.

Registered charity (no. 1155534).

What makes us wonderful?

We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.

We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.

We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
