With no regular income, at present, we rely entirely upon the goodwill of our sponsors, fund raisers and volunteers. Without their efforts we would not exist and be in a position to own, restore and open the Leasowes Walled Garden for public benefit. Every contribution is appreciated and acknowledged, no matter how small or large it is.
We believe that our supporters will understand the need to mention our commercial; institutional and amenity society sponsors. These are:
A J Mucklow PLC, who donated £10,000 towards purchase - http://www.mucklow.com
Dudley Metropolitan Borough Council, who through their two Halesowen Forums, granted £6,800 and waved the 20% contribution that we would have to pay in rates.
Friends of the Leasowes, who gave £5,000
Pegasus Grab Hire, Halesowen Depot, Mucklow Hill, for collecting 9 tonnes of building rubble, from the Walled Garden, free of charge - http://www.pegasusgrabhire.co.uk
We extend a special thanks to 'Halesowen Roots', who, through their Facebook page, continue to promote the restoration of the Walled Garden. Their contribution has had major beneficial impact.
Another special mention goes to Ken Russell, who has organised two successful and entertaining fund raising and social events for the Walled Garden.
