Update on donations to Yarl’s Wood Gardening Scheme.

Following Thyme 2 Grows withdrawal from the Yarl’s Wood Gardening Scheme I have contacted all crowdfunding donors who gave £100 or more to discuss what they would like done with the unspent proportion of their donation.

For other supporters, following feedback from a number of you, I am waiting until next spring when I will confirm with Serco whether gardening can go ahead – and I still believe there may be reason for hope!

While a small amount of funding has gone on essential admin cost the majority is either invested in tools and equipment – all still brand new – or held in the Thyme Activities CIC Bank account. As a registered CIC, Thyme Activities is governed by strict rules about the transfer of funds and assets – so it will all eventually be returned or put to good use.

Once again, I am very sorry that this situation has occurred and still extremely grateful to everyone for their support.

If you would like to discuss you donation further, please do not hesitate to get in touch: emmad@thyme2grow.org.uk
