Wolves Lane needs your help to go Solar!

The Ubele team at Wolves Lane is asking all Wolves Lane fans, supporters, Haringey community and friends to support a crowdfunding effort to raise money for

SOLAR POWER AT WOLVES LANE

Palmhouse and Café!

Find out more at spacehive.com/wolveslanepalmhouse !!!

~~

Bank transfer

Can people donate to the solar power appeal without using a debit card on Spacehive? YES!

An alternative which is just like giving to any other good cause has been set up.Although Ubele is the chosen member of the Wolves Lane consortium to handle the crowdfund funds, to ease their admin load we have set up a conventional donation arrangement via a trusted intermediary, the community gardeners’ group Growing in Haringey. Pamela Harling is its treasurer.

  1. Just send your money to the Growing in Haringey bank account which is: ‘Growing in Haringey’ , Sort code 08-92-99, Account number 65409413.
  2. Please label your transfer – on the payin slip or its online equivalent – as <yourname> CROWDF.
  3. Then send an e-mail to Pamela at pjharling@hotmail.com saying ‘I have paid £x into the GIH account for the crowdfund’.

Cheques are also welcome – please write your phone number and/or e-mail on the back and give them to Pamela, Islay, Anne or Loretta when you see us on site.

Debit Card – donate at spacehive.com/wolveslanepalmhouse !!!

*** Many thanks for your support! ***

Time Credits are run by Tempo (formerly Spice), a charity that started in Wales in 2008 and now works across the UK.”

“Time Credits work very simply: for each hour that an individual contributes to their community or service, they could earn a Time Credit. This Time Credit can be spent accessing an hour of activity provided by one of our corporate and community partners, or gifted to others.”

Time Credits are a way of recognising the amazing things people do in their communities. …Everyone’s time is worth the same with Time Credits, and as well as spending them yourself you can take friends or family with you or give them some of your Time Credits to spend themselves.”

“There are lots of ways to earn Time Credits across your community, and hundreds of ways to spend them across the country. Have a look around our website for spending opportunities near you, and in other regions of the UK.”
