Buy plants in aid of us

Calling all plant lovers! Come and bag some greenfingered bargains at our fundraising spring plant sale this month (May 2024).

We’re holding the event on May 11, 10am-12pm, at CommuniBakes, at 21, St James Road in Shirley, with all money raised going towards helping vulnerable and isolated people in Southampton.

Our Fundraising and Finance Coordinator, Emily explains: “We’re very excited to be hosting our third annual plant sale once again this year. It will take place at our community bakery, CommuniBakes, which is the commercial venture for our charity.

“People have been asked to sow extra seeds for us, take cuttings and also grow on plants and donate them on the day. We’re really looking forward to seeing what people kindly bring along for us to sell to help raise funds for the work that we do.

“We hope lots of people come to the sale on the day too. Those that do will be able to pick up a sweet or savoury treat, or two, from the bakery and enjoy tea and coffee, and sit at its pavement tables, subject to availability, too.

“CommuniBakes supports our work, all its profits are donated to our charity, so you can enjoy a cake, or take home a loaf, and know you’re helping people living nearby at the same time.”

If you’d like to donate plants for us to sell, please bring these on the day from 8.30am. Thank you.

Please get in touch if you need more information.

We’d love to see you there, so please come along and join us.
