We are Anglesey Primary School, a large multicultural primary school in Lozells, Birmingham with over 740 pupils including a Nursery and a Speech and Language Base.
We want to transform the playground for some of our youngest pupils into an interactive green outdoor learning space including a forest school. We are associated with various local charities which support safe, green spaces for families, including Aspire and Succeed and The Friends of George’s Park. We want our children to learn about the wonders of science and nature in their own school too. To learn how to take care of their environment, to take responsibility for it and to ensure it flourishes.
During the pandemic and subsequent lockdowns, access to green areas has been limited for our pupils. We want our pupils to have the opportunity to explore the world around them and be involved in the design and construction of this project and be immersed in nature across the year. It will be their green space.
We are aware of rising issues of mental health affecting children, particularly highlighted during the pandemic and this project would enhance pupil’s mental and spiritual health. We have incorporated the use of our garden into our wider curriculum and we would provide after school clubs. It will be a hands-on outdoor learning space with benefits to our pupils including boosting confidence, social skills, communication, motivation, physical skills, problem solving skills, knowledge and understanding and self-esteem from hands on learning. Pupils will have opportunities to work cooperatively and develop further positive attitude to learning following and have control over their environment.
The funding would allow us to create a space for parents to use and develop and train a volunteer parent workforce. We would have planting areas for the community to access and take responsibility for specific areas of the garden, including maintenance. We would utilise the expertise of a Forest School Leader and further use the services of Growing Gains to ensure the pupils get the most out of the space and provide training for staff. All food grown will be harvested and cooked and eaten by pupils and the community, including hosting a special ‘Cook Off’ day.
Our Outdoor Learning space would include a forest school area with fire pit, den building, a digging area (after seeing how motivated the children were when planting trees in our local park), planting areas for vegetables and fruit as well as a variety of other trees and plants, a large construction area, a wildlife pond, bird viewing area and water collection areas to reuse water in the garden. We want to encourage as much wildlife to the space as possible, to broaden our pupil’s knowledge and experiences.
At Anglesey Primary School, we want our pupils to be ‘Inquisitive, Resilient and Independent’ and an outdoor learning space would allow pupils to further implement these values.
We are a small charity which has been set up to design, fundraise, build and run a theatre and events space in Stone; providing community facilities that are flexible, affordable and accessible to local communities.
We have been donated the empty shell of an auditorium building and back of house facilities. It is now our job to fully fit the buildings, from bare brickwork as it is now to a fully habitable and functional community facility.
We have run out fo funds to be able to fully refurbish our site.
We have demolished unsafe buildings and removed old asbestos from the site ( local animal charity)
We now have a large Arena that has been refurbished but we have no funds to be able make the floor usable.
The arena was used for fund rasing events or to hire out so we can secure an income but we have now lost this income stream.
Withuot cement flooring, the Arena is unuasbledonate now

The Gmax (Anti Knife) intervention Program works by using athletics to detract youth from violence and engage them in holistic personal development which changes behaviour traits and negative mindsets. Our motivational strategies employ an evidence-based model proven to reduce violence in youth by positive engagement
The program focuses on building confidence, communication skills and self-esteem, while inspiring the participants to engage in education, training and employment.
We do however need to have financial sustainability. We have cleverly adopted the same fundraising strategy as Heart foundation and cancer research for income sustainability. Our “Sports on the High street” uses our successful dragonfly Yoga studio model to raise funds for our playground to podium sports development program.
We need materials to fit out the commercial unit where we can deliver bigger Yoga classes and youth education workshops.
Absolutely everything is needed for this amazing facility in Sydenham

House comprised of 7 flats that has a huge garden. We have just been given permission by the landlord to turn this garden into an allotment for us the residents and produce fresh food, of which there will be too much for us to consume, so all surplus produce we are donating to our local food bank, so our local community can have fresh organic produce too. We will be taking delivery of the new polytunnel, seeds, plants, shrubs and trees at the end of this March and beginning of April. We have only just managed to scrap together £500 between us to buy all this. However, we need help with sourcing used sleepers or used scaffold planks or bricks to make the raised beds and don't have the transport to get them either, so that is our biggest challenge with this fresh food project.donate now

I have seen the work that Enviromate does with regard to material donations for projects and wondered if you could help.
I have a disabled son who will be 30 yrs old this May and with his conditions we all, including hospital staff, never expected him to reach this age.
To celebrate his birthday and the arrival of Spring, we are creating him a surprise sensory garden and have managed to build a fish pond for him but am trying to find scaffold boards to edge the pond with and also raise the flower borders so that he can reach them from his wheelchair.
Unfortunately we are now low on funds to complete the project in time. If Enviromate could help in any way we would be very grateful.
I have never asked for anything before but after seeing your work, I thought it would be worth speaking with you.
Enviromate Donate are proud to be supporting this fantastic Rebuilt4u Community Project in Jaywick, Essex helping re-home individuals who have found themselves in unfortunate circumstances and living on the street’s. The project begins with the regeneration of a property from reclaimed and surplus materials and the guys need your help in all forms from materials to volunteering support – take a read of the project overview below and if there is anyway you can help however small then drop us a line at email@example.com to discuss;
Rebuilt4U is a registered not for profit community interest company set up with the aim to regenerate the derelict housing stock in some of the UK’s most deprived areas. We want to provide affordable housing for all. We will target our support where we know it will have the most lasting impact.
Rebuilt4U was founded by Daniel Hill. A successful entrepreneur who is a regular on TV and featured in shows such as Channel 4’s Ultimate Dealers and SuperScrimpers, BBC’s 24 Hours in the Past and most recently the hit Dave show Storage Hunters UK. This wheeler dealer will turn his hand to anything but his passion is to help others achieve.
Having a roof over our head is often taken for granted but there are many families and individuals who do not have a place to call home. Rebuilt4U want to help provide homes for those in need by renovating and building more affordable housing.
With your help we can make a difference. We are looking for volunteers who can donate a few hours of their time or expertise to help make dilapidated properties liveable again.
If your a builder, carpenter, electrician, labourer or you can donate building materials or essentials like bathrooms and kitchens then we would LOVE to hear from you.

Bedfords Park Walled Garden is a community-focused food growing space on the edge of London. It sits within a nature reserve and an historical setting.
The aim of the garden is to teach people about food, growing their own, giving valuable life skills to some and ‘skills for working’ to others. There are gardening clubs for the new and the experienced as well as many events, workshops and activities to enjoy whether you’re a gardener or not.
We don’t have enough storage so we’re building 2 sheds. One small one at the back of the Fern house and the other long one at the back of the pineapple house. Both these aspects are north facing and therefore no good for planting and ideal for the sheds we need. The sheds will be made from as much reclaimed and reusable material as possible.
Our project is called Food For Thought and it is a grow your own project for schools in disadvantaged areas in East Ayrshire. We are working with 2 classes within each of the 7 primary schools involved in the project. We’d like to be able to create at least 2 raised beds for each school which would mean using around 28 scaffold planks.
The raised beds would be used both for growing crops the children would plant and harvest, cook and eat and for growing plants for pollinators. Work outside would link with other work completed in the classroom promoting healthy food choices and an awareness of the role played by pollinators in food production. The schools are registered with the RHS Campaign for the School Gardening.
The project via TCV is a renovation of a community centre garden in Swinnnow, Leeds. We held a community consultation to see what locals wanted, and refined the ideas to a few key areas.
An additional path will be built up from the car park to the café seating area, surrounded by a sensory garden and information/history panels. There is a deaf and blind group who use the centre weekly, and have expressed that the current path is not suitable. The sensory garden will be popular for all, however our wish is provide a place where those with dementure can relax and enjoy their surroundings.
The path will continue past the café area and up a rise, so wide and accessible steps will be needed, along with a railing. At the top of the rise there will be raised beds and a greenhouse, so that the current gardening group can have their own space. The space with provide opportunity and incentive for thegroup to expand, and produce will be sold at a value price on site. The money made will go back into the centre.
On top of the rise there is also a shady area behind the centre building. This will be transformed into a wildlife and children’s outdoor education area, using all natural products such as live willow and mushroom seats made from felled tree trunks.
Finally the old paving slabs that provide the current path will be brought up and layed again properly, to ensure the path is even. Woven willow screens will also be fixed around the bins. The outcome should be an appealing, inviting area that’s suitable for many users. If we got even one part of this list through you we would be extremely grateful.
