Since the fire was reported in the Derby Telegraph we have been touched by the many offers of support we have received to help us put things right. Funding is being provided by Toyota, Western Power, Littleover Business Group and Tom Carey Fund to clear up the debris and to provide new tools and equipment for the school group. Donations have also come from the Rowditch pub and Kedleston Road allotments. Mr Green and Mr Tunicliffe have provided us with two sheds and two greenhouses to replace those destroyed in the fire.
The school are moving on to a new plot for a fresh start; students from Broomfield College and members of the association have given their time to help clear the plot ready for cultivation and a skip provided by Metallon Ltd.
Very many thanks to all the organisations, businesses and individuals who have helped us out with funding and time – we couldn’t have done it without you and can now look forward to the future with renewed optimism.
