New Leaf would thank the following organisations, for supporting us:
United St Saviour’s Charity United St Saviour’s Charity operates two almshouses for Southwark pensioners and gives grants totaling £600,000 each year to community groups and organisations in North Southwark and Bermondsey. They have generously supported our work with young people.
Capital Community Foundation & Grassroots Fund
Chandni’s Restaurant – have been exceptional landlords, not only for their peppercorn rent (they rent us the shop) – but their general ongoing support. I can personally vouch for the deliciousness of the food served at this family-run Indian restaurant – (just under the railway bridge from the New Leaf shop).
Big Yellow Storage – West Norwood
The Linnean Society London have recognised New Leaf. In fact, Vinnie O’Connell is a Fellow – that’s what the Fls after is name stands for (Fellow of the Linnean Society).
ao is a blog on everyday green living – featuring many vegetarian recipes, as well as articles about local green initiatives. This company have done New Leaf’s branding, web design and marketing pro bono.
Belair Park & Friends
Much of our work has relied on help from the Friends of Belair Park, (Bel Air Park is that lovely big park just across the road) led by Martin Heath. Over the past few years we have worked together to host a diverse range of participants, young and old, in activities to improve the ecology of Belair Park. For more details of the work that we have done, and which is ongoing, please visit their website, and sign up for the monthly newsletters which are always rich in information about the flora and fauna of the area.
