Supporting jelly

You can support jelly in many ways:

Become a volunteer We love what we do and you will have hands-on experience in a programme that we will develop to make sure you get the most from your experience with us.

Donate things One man's junk is another's treasure and at jelly we have made it a speciality to make something out of nothing, it is almost our calling card. We are very grateful to our regular commercial donors from Reading including John Lewis, Picnic, The View, Haslams and Reading Evening Post who donate shoe boxes, water bottles and old newspapers. We have also been lucky enough in the past to receive a small portable printing press, chicken wire, silver milk bottle tops amongst other day to day household recyclable items, you would be amazed at what we can do. If you have anything you think we might appreciate, please contact us at education[at]

Become a friend of jelly Friends matter to us, they keep us going and we know they are out there. We like our friends to feel special and when we move we are going to make you feel extra special. For £25 for an annual membership, your support will mean we can deliver the projects and education programme we have planned and beyond. More importantly as our friends are special, we would like to give something back to you – so your commitment to us means we invite you as a VIP to events, organise special discounts with our friends such as our lovely picture framer plus you will get access to friends only pop-up events. These pop-up events will be a regular programme of special evenings just for friends of the jelly, the evening could be a film, music, poetry, an art event or just a chance to enjoy a drink in some great company.

Support us financially The smallest donation can sometimes make the biggest impact, £5 can buy 5litres of PVA, £15 can buy coloured tissue paper, £30 can buy a bundle of willow, £50 pays for 2 hours of an artists time – altogether that makes a willow workshop with up to 100 children (especially if we have helpers!). So any contribution big or small makes a difference to us.

If you would like to become a friend or make a donation, you can either leave a comment here and we will contact you or make your donation via our Big Give page  (make sure you click the I would like to receive further information from this charity) which means that if you are a taxpayer, your subscription could be Gift Aided which benefits all of us.

Become a sponsor of jelly Sponsors have been an invaluable part of our past providing us with both financial support and support in kind. Previous support has included : sponsoring an exhibition, marketing programme development, website support, business support and workshop programme sponsorship. Sponsorship has a significant role to play in what we do, we can make your support stretch further, it can become partner funding for a large project and we can increase the value by Gift Aid. We are currently looking for some very special sponsors who will help us make the leap in to our new home, could this be you?
