A Chesterfield based charity, Inspire Community Garden, has received a donation of £1,000 from The Mansfield Building Society’s Community Support Scheme to help fund a new secure tool shed and maintenance area for tools and machinery.
The Inspire Garden is a charity and relies solely on the work of volunteers and charitable donations to maintain their land. By working with local residents on garden projects, the community garden encourages people of all ages and abilities to get involved in working the garden and growing food whilst developing a sense of community.
Steve Sansom, Trustee of the Inspire Community Garden said “Thank you for the wonderful donation which will result in us building a new secure tool store and workshop. We hope to continue our work together and when the weather is more suitable we will host an evening at the garden for your staff, friends and families to visit with the pizza oven and barbeque in operation!”
Jade Butt, Senior Branch Customer Advisor said “After volunteering last year, it was great to visit the Chesterfield Inspire Community Garden again. The garden has come a long way in such a short space of time and I know our donation is going to help the Inspire Garden grow even more!”
