Cultivating Kensington & Chelsea is a volunteer-led project that was registered as a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO) with the Charity Commission at the beginning of 2016. CKC’s volunteers grow herb and vegetable seedlings to sell onto community kitchen garden plot holders and the wider public. The funds from the sales will support the community kitchen garden sites through the CKC Grant Fund
It’s Time to Celebrate with the Big Co-op Payout
The Co-op Local Community Fund helps pay for local projects that its members care about. Every time members shop at the Co-op, 1% of what they spend on selected own-branded products and services goes to help fund community projects where they live. In addition, all money raised from shopping bag sales goes to the chosen causes to help even more.
From Wednesday 20 November to Saturday 23 November, thousands of local causes celebrated with the Co-op and said thank you to its members for raising £17m and Cultivating Kensington and Chelsea was lucky enough to be one of them.
Cultivating Kensington and Chelsea hosted a Community Event in the Co-op King’s Road branch from 2 pm on Saturday 23 November. CKC trustees were there to receive a cheque for £3776.40 from the Store Manager and the Community Fund Team and to say a big thank you to all the members who helped to raise this much needed funding. The money raised will be spent on additional equipment to improve The Greenhouse site where all of the growing is done by volunteers.
