Fit Out Appeal

We're delighted that our crowdfunding campaign to raise £12,000 towards kitting out our new education centre was a huge success. We exceeded our target by more than £3,000, taking a total of £15,148 in pledges from 197 supporters.

Huge thanks to everyone who gave so generously - we even had a donation from Australia! We were also very touched by the supportive comments, showing how much the work of the Friends' volunteers is valued.

What next?

Now we are applying for grants to bring us up to the total of £29,000 we need before the new education centre opens in early summer.

However, if you missed out on the crowdfunding appeal and would still like to donate, you can do so by clicking the Donate button on this page.

Alternatively, we will have collecting boxes at Brixton Windmill on our open days, or you can send a cheque made out to Friends of Windmill Gardens to:

Friends of Windmill Gardens
24 Prague Place

Thank you!

Can you donate equipment?

As well as financial donations, we're looking for organisations who may be able to donate equipment for the café, storage, cleaning, and baking classes.

For example, we need:

  • Sets of kitchen utensils for our baking classes, including baking trays, cake and loaf tins, mixers, bowls, blenders, chopping boards, whisks, hotplates and cooling racks
  • Catering equipment for our café for visitors and education workshops, including cutlery, mugs, glasses, plates, kettle, tea urn, coffee machine
  • Storage facilities, including free-standing shelving and racking, heavy-duty containers, toolbox and tools, grain trolley
  • Cleaning equipment, including a washing machine, vacuum cleaner, aqua vac, brooms and mops.

Obviously all equipment needs to be robust and meet required safety standards. 

If you would be willing to donate such equipment to get our new education centre off to a flying start, or if you know of another organisation that might do so, please email

Thank you!
