During the Summer of 2012 we received a grant of £1000.00 from Comic Relief. This allowed us to have a summer club for the youngsters each day and take placements on a pilot scheme. It worked so well that Comic Relief has granted us £30,000 funding to allow us to take placements at GZ 3 days a week for 2 years along with sessional craft workers. The youngsters who come from the local colleges will not only work on the garden but learn many other life skills, such as building, woodwork and general maintenance..
Pupils from Tadcaster Grammar School visted the project to see how some of the funds they had raised for Comic Relief has been spent.
They got the opportunity to meet some of the volunteers and help with some of the chores as well as trying jewellery making and pyrography
