Our outdoor activities take place across Kirklees in a wide variety of locations. We work with a different age groups and additional needs and disabilities. More information about our three main projects can be found here.
We currently benefit from the support of Cummins Turbo Technologies and Paddock Community Trust with staff volunteers, work space and provision of equipment and advice.
Fundraising for us
Fundraising events like marathon runs are a great source of support. We recently had a fundraiser trek to Everest Base Camp (an incredible 125Kms climbing at altitude) in aid of our Sprout project.
We are always keen to have this support and can help you to set up a local giving page, making it easy for people to donate. If you have a business, your staff could fundraise for us in various ways, having fun while giving to a fabulous cause!
Our Current fundraiser is “Going greener at Growing Works”
Businesses and Organisations can get involved with Growing Works in various ways:
Corporate sponsorship is welcome at various levels. This vital support helps us to ensure the stability of our projects, it can provide equipment to enable people to get involved in outdoor activity, or it can fund our workers to support families attending SPRout, or vulnerable adults accessing our volunteer program or therapeutic gardening sessions.

Hiring the POD
We can provide lunchtime workshops for your staff supporting their well-being at work through simple growing and outdoor activities within the grounds of your business. These can be tailored towards what staff are interested in; for example planting, nurturing and harvesting salad vegetables for their lunches or improving an outdoor space to take breaks. Team building events can be designed to develop relationships between staff and promote healthy working relationships and a healthy work environment.
If you have an event and want to provide something a bit different for your clients or partners then why not hire the POD. We can provide fun relaxed activities with a green message or a focus on health and well-being! Get in touch for a quote to suit your requirements.
