If you are looking at starting your Christmas shopping early why not do it online and raise a donation to Horticap via easyfundraising.org.uk. There are many different retailers registered on easy fundraising including Amazon, Argos and Marks and Spencer who donate on your behalf to your chosen charity when you make a purchase with them. Follow the link below to start your shopping!
If you are looking to keep the children entertained over the school holidays come along to Horticap. Our Passport Packs can be purchased for £1 and contain a map of the nature trail around our gardens which the children can follow and learn about Horticulture, they also contain puzzles and activities. We also have ice creams and drinks available.
We have about 30 volunteers who perform a variety of roles for Horticap. Naturally we have many gardeners who work in the greenhouses, on-site garden, and off-site on contracts that we have to look after the grounds of businesses and private homes. But we also have volunteers in the workshop, kitchen, shop, craft makers, on our Board of Trustees and speakers who visit local clubs to tell them about Horticap. We would love to have some Fund Raising volunteers, and a Marketing volunteer. If you would like to offer a half-day or whole day, once a week then please contact us. We’ll give you a guided tour of Horticap to meet the students, staff and other volunteers so you can find out a bit more about what we do.
We are keen to encourage more students to attend Horticap by raising awareness of who we are and what we do. Our students are adults with learning disabilities, they come to Horticap to train in horticulture and gain all sorts of life skills. Perhaps you know someone who could benefit, if not you can still help us and the students by simply spreading the word on facebook. Please pass this message on to at least one of your friends asking them to like our facebook page. If you do know someone who may benefit from Horticap please contact Pauline at Horticap on 01423 522876 or email email@example.com.
Thank you from all (students, volunteers and staff at Horticap)
