Growing Together – Building Communities

Get Growing needs your vote!

17 May 2023
Group asking people to vote for Get Growing in The People's projects

Hands of Hope’s ‘Get Growing’ programme has been shortlisted as 1 of the 5 regional finalists to receive National Lottery funding through The People’s Projects 2023 and WE NEED YOUR VOTE to help us win.

The People’s Projects gives the public a chance to vote for the projects they would like to see receive funding to improve the lives of people in their community.

We’ve asked for £54,540 so we can run Get Growing for the next year…

What is Get Growing?

Get Growing supports people throughout Rother, Hastings and West Kent – teaching them to grow their own food and helping communities to avoid food poverty – all supported by volunteers.
  • 28% of children in the local areas we support live in food poverty
  • Get Growing is supported by local people who give their time to volunteer – getting them outside, physically active, learning new skills and connected to each other

When the going gets tough, the tough Get Growing!

What will we achieve with the funding?

  • Through Get Growing, 20,000 people will receive FREE Grow Kits and support to grow their own food in whatever space they have
  • Organic fruit & veg will be delivered weekly to local food banks to help those in need

Your vote could help us secure vital funds needed to deliver this project.
