Link Age Southwark – crowdfunding appeal

Can you help Link Age Southwark reach their all or nothing ‘Bloomin’ Lovely’ crowdfunder project target? An all or nothing target means that if they don’t reach their target they receive none of the donations made and the project won’t be funded.

The vision for the Bloomin’ Lovely project is to adapt and expand their gardening service in an extra special way to show that the local community cares about their older friends. As a result of the lockdown most older people have been unable to do any kind of shopping, including buying plants and flowers to spruce up their gardens.

This year, Link Age Southwark’s aim is to adapt their service for those who are shielding, self-isolating or worried about going out, and to bring a bit of colour back into their lives by delivering bedding plants, a bunch of flowers or a houseplant to them.

Link Age Southwark has had to cancel its planned community fundraising events which raise vital funds to facilitate their services. Your support with this project will enable it to make up the shortfall in order to sustain their service provision at a time when it has never been more important.

Link Age Southwark has launched its crowdfunding page project – Bloomin’ Lovely. There are 48 days to reach their all or nothing target of £5,000 and they would really appreciate support with getting the ball rolling on this. There is a Link below to the appeal:

The first donations have come in. Volunteers, patron and donors are planning to contact five people to let them know about Link Age Southwark and this project.

Please support this important appeal for our community and help to generate some interest in the crowdfunder page.

You’ll see the gardening project and a video that brings the gardening element to life.

Thank you for your help with letting people know about this crowdunding project.


Link Age Southwark is a Registered Charity No.1105923
