Horticap welcomes volunteers with an interest in horticulture and empathy towards adults with learning difficulties. We are immensely fortunate to have a full team of 25 loyal and dedicated volunteers. We are even more fortunate to have a waiting list of prospective volunteers.
Volunteers use their skills and experience to assist the instructors and students in propagating, cultivating and maintaining quality plants for sale in our shop. Just like the weather, no two days are ever the same. Volunteers lend a hand throughout the year in a variety of ways – creating hanging baskets, mending fences or selling Christmas trees.
Throughout the year a wide range of fundraising events is staged. If you enjoy fundraising, opportunities are available as help is needed at all levels.
Regular Giving & Gift Aid
Horticap is grateful for all donations from organisations and private individuals whatever the amount and whenever they arrive. However, in order to help with our cash flow and budgeting, we encourage people to commit to regular giving (minimum £10 per year). A standing order is set up and then the donation can be made monthly, quarterly or annually. If you are a taxpayer and complete a Gift Aid form, Horticap can also claim the tax on your donation, increasing it considerably. Gift Aid is also applicable to one off donations and is a valuable add on to any gift. Please consider this way of supporting us as well as the below online methods:
