Kintsugi wouldn't be the fabulous project it is without our amazing community of supporters!
THE NORTH YARD COMMUNITY TRUST
The Trust is responsible for managing local funding capital received by Viridor. It is made up of councillors and local people within the local vicinity of the Incinerator at Camels Head. We are very fortunate to have received £9,354 to help us build the Kintsugi Garden in Keyham, which is a community garden being built with disability in mind. We are tremendously fortunate to have your support and thank you.
PLYMOUTH CITY COUNCIL
The Council have been very supportive in helping us secure the community garden plot at Knowle Avenue, Keyham. In particular, The Strategic Planning and Infrastructure Department, who helped us with the NYCT grant application and the planning application work. This department have also been very supportive of our plans for the garden.
CO-OP LOCAL COMMUNITY FUND
Last year the Co-op helped us acquire £300 for the Kintsugi Garden which is only a 10 minute walk from the store. This went toward gardening tools for the volunteers to use.
Both branches in Plymouth, Richmond Walk and Sutton Road have been very supportive in helping us keep our build costs down. In particular, Julie and Marcus at Richmond Walk, who helped donate some materials early on.
Travis Perkins have been a great help during the Covid-19 lockdown with helping us source building materials in a timely and safe manner.
TOTEM TIMBER PLYMOUTH
Totem Timber Plymouth massively helped us during the Covid-19 lockdown with sourcing wood and other materials needed for the garden build.
DOORS & WINDOWS LTD
Based in Plympton, Plymouth this family run company have been very helpful in helping us acquire uPVC doors at a reasonable price. These doors are going to be fitted on to our storage container cabin at the community garden. During lockdown, our work on the garden had ground to almost a halt whilst volunteers had been following the social distancing rules. We are so very grateful for this company for holding our doors within their ware house until we can get team together to fit them – Thank you.
COUNCILLORS BILL STEVENS & KATE TAYLOR
A massive thank you these lovely councillors. With the Covid-19 crisis, our plans and costings for the community garden were greatly disrupted and these councillors stepped up to donate part of their community funding budget to help us ensure the garden renovation stayed on track.
