Shettleston Community Growing Project

We're saddened to report this awful news.

Our Smelly Welly kids club shed, potting shed and polytunnel were ravaged by fire at the start of the September weekend. 




Thankfully, no-one was hurt and the work of the garden will continue despite this major setback, though it will take time to get things back to rights. Worst affected is the Smelly Welly Club - unfortunately all activities for children and families are on hold for now.

We want to say a huge thanks for all the lovely messages of support from local residents and via facebook and Twitter

We've had lots of people asking how they may donate to help us rebuild.

We would be grateful for whatever you can spare, however large or small.

We use the wonderful for online donations and Localgiving's Grow Your Tenner campaign starts on 13 October which means we could get as much as £21.67 for every £10 donated with Gift Aid from that date.

Funds can also be handed in at Shettleston Housing Association's reception (65 Pettigrew Street, Glasgow G32 7XR) during office hours.

Whenever you buy anything online - from your weekly shop to your annual holiday - you could be raising a free donation for us. There are nearly 3,000 retailers including Amazon, John Lewis, Aviva, thetrainline and Sainsbury's, who will donate a percentage of the amount you spend to our project to say thank you for shopping with them.

It's really simple, and doesn't cost you anything.

All you have to do is:

1. Go to

2. Sign up for free 

3. Get shopping - your donations will be collected by easyfundraising and automatically sent to us. It couldn't be easier!

There are no catches or hidden charges and we will be really grateful for your donations.

Thank you for whatever way you choose to support us. It really does mean a lot.
