“A HUGE thank you again for supporting us with [the white goods], they will truly make a positive impact to our work. From helping feed our members a hot meal every Wednesday, storing milk for those vital cuppas, freezing our produce so it doesn’t go to waste and so much more!” 

Growing Together member days take place every Wednesday between 9am and 4pm.  

The Growing Together Basildon garden is just one of six sites managed by the charity throughout the county. Trust Links’ Growing Together project also supports communities from its therapeutic gardens in Westcliff, Shoeburyness, Rochford, Thundersley, and Cressing Temple. In addition, the charity offers a variety of support to adults, young people, and families in Essex through a range of projects, including recovery classes, social groups and more. 

Visit the Trust Links website for more information and to find out how you can get involved either as a member or a volunteer.
