The Harpenden Macmillan Cancer Support is a small cog in the nationwide fund-raising machine that underpins the leading cancer support organisation in the UK. 98% of Macmillan’s income comes from voluntary donations and all our fundraising for Grow-a-row will go straight to the charity.

This fundraising project is supported by Plot 31. Based in Harpenden, Plot 31 is a community garden with a difference! We operate as a social enterprise and grow gorgeous, seasonal and sustainable flowers which we sell locally to fund the running of our community projects.
