Make a donation

It costs almost £500,000 to run Grove Cottage each year and although we are affiliated with Mencap we receive no funding from the national body. Your donations therefore mean a lot to us; we simply could not continue without support from the local community.

The difference your donation makes

  • £10 – Fully funds the running costs of the Grove Cottage minibus for one day
  • £20 – Funds one session of our Wednesday Adult Club which provides a fun, creative and supportive environment for adult members
  • £50 – Funds one member to attend a session of our Cottage Chill Club for members aged 10-19 years with more complex needs
  • £100 – Fully staffs our Special Needs Nursery for one hour

You can also make a donation by:


Post a cheque payable to ‘Bishop’s Stortford Mencap’ to:

Grove Cottage,
151 London Road,
Bishop’s Stortford,
CM23 3JX
