My sister-in-law's allotment is her pride and joy. Along with a huge amount of love, Sarah has spent many hours of hard work and a great deal of money turning the land into the beautiful place it is today. She has expertly grown vegetables, from tomatoes to squash, in her polytunnel and cultivated fruits and legumes, from blueberries to beans, in raised beds, all from scratch! In order to enjoy her space and keep her tools safe on site, she spent weeks building this shed (which she'd affectionately named Mavis ), pergola and decking area with her friends.
Sadly, a couple of nights ago, someone damaged the polytunnel and then set fire to and completely destroyed the area you see above. All that remains are ashes.
Sarah, was devastated when she arrived in the morning to water the plants and came across the destruction. A number or tools, equipment and several irreplaceable sentimental items were also lost in the fire.
We need to raise £1500 in order to rebuild the site and restore Sarah's smile.
The money will go towards
- the materials for a new shed, decking and pergola
- a new hoe, fork, trowel and rake
- blankets and storage boxes
Please contribute whatever you can.
Thank you so much!!
