Transform the Loo's 4 You Whitegate Way
Transform the Loo's 4 You Whitegate Way joined Cheshire West Crowd9 hrs ago

We are desperate to update the customer toilet block on the Whitegate Way nature trail, which supports our cafe users and the general public. Internally the decor needs totally refurbishing to include baby changing facilities and hot air hand dryers. We will replace all 4 toilets and sink units, 3 new PVC windows, 2 external doors, urinals, 1 hot water boiler & painting throughout. We would love to create a roof top garden with turf if funds allow, and clear and plant up the immediate area around the site. Our amazing Station House Cafe volunteers and our SEN students on a Friday, will maintain the garden area, planting indigenous shrubs and flowers which will encourage wildlife, bees and butterflies. We would also like to provide cold shower facilities for dog owners, walkers and cyclists who use the Whitegate Way, so they can remove the worst of the mud on a rainy day before they get into their cars!

The Oaks Community School Oasis
The Oaks Community School Oasis joined Cheshire West Crowd1 week ago

Partnering with Mintopia, a renowned national plant collection, and experts in eco-pedagogy, the initiative will create an inclusive environment that fosters a deeper connection to nature for pupils, parents, and the urban local community. Central to the project is the development of biodiverse gardens and green spaces that serve multiple purposes: they will be outdoor classrooms for hands-on ecological education, tranquil areas for mindfulness and relaxation, and communal gardens for community interaction and stewardship. The diverse plantings from Mintopia will not only enhance the aesthetic appeal of the school grounds but also support local wildlife and contribute to urban biodiversity, addressing broader climate change challenges.

Studio Equipment is essential to help creatives grow and develop for the Foundation to fulfil their goal. Our target is to collect £21,500 for: 1. BUTTON HOLE MACHINE. Essential for all the makers to allow producing clothes and bags. We require the heavy-duty unit to help us work with upcycled materials, like denim, car seat belts, sailcloth etc. 2. VINYL PLOTTER Needed to allow large-scale, high-quality pattern and design development. New plotter technology will allow us to be more sustainable. 3. INDUSTRIAL IRON/ STEAMER It is essential for designing new patterns and styles and taming unrulled textiles and fabrics. 4. BAR TACK MACHINE This machine is used to create reinforcement for pocket and heavy-duty clothing like outdoor pieces. 5. COVER STITCH MACHINE The stitches created by this machine allow for more flexibility for the fabric, and it's essential when working with knits, wool or jersey and adds to the longevity of the designs. We have great space now we need a great kit!
