Trust Links


Running four sites and maintaining equipment, feeding the chickens, paying for staff, all adds up:
  • It costs £20 to provide steel toe-capped boots for members to use whilst working in the gardens.
  • 10 bags of compost to plant seedlings costs £60.
  • A day’s therapeutic gardening for a member at a Growing Together site = £36.

We can become a more sustainable organisation and help more people through regular donations from you, meaning we can plan ahead and not chase our tails for funding!

We also love to receive donations of good condition gardening tools and items for our shop at the Westcliff site such as books, bric-a-brac and unwanted plants. We also run numerous events throughout the year which raise vital funds. We always need volunteers to help and donations of raffle prizes.

Trust Links receives funding from various sources such as Southend Borough Council, the Heritage Lottery Fund, Essex County Council, Essex Community Foundation, Big Lottery Fund, Southend and Castle Point Borough Council, Rochford Clinical Commissioning Groups and other local and national grant making bodies. But we do not have a block of funding each year from anywhere to help keep us going…



How to donate

We welcome any donation however small. Donations can be made through Virgin Money Giving or by cheque (payable to Trust Links) or cash to the office.

If you are a tax payer we can claim Gift Aid, which means we get 25% extra from the tax man for your donation.
