Your small donation can be doubled until 17:00 on 17th November … Please support us 

This year Transition Tavistock is taking part in Grow Your Tenner, an annual match funding campaign run by Localgiving.

This is an amazing opportunity for Transition Tavistock.  We encourage all of you to get involved in whatever way you can – be it as a fundraiser, a donor or simply by spreading the word.

During this campaign Localgiving will match all online donations up to £10, and monthly donations up to £10 per month for 3 months.

With the added incentive of your monthly donation being matched, it is the best time to set up a Direct Debit for our cause. A regular donation will help us to continue our work and our community space at Local Matters for the foreseeable future.

To donate to us or find out more about Grow Your Tenner you can visit:

Grow Your Tenner 2016 will run from 10am on Tuesday 18th October until 5pm on Thursday 17th November, or until the money runs out. Remember, only donations made in this time will be eligible for match funding! We think the money is likely to run out this week, so please act quickly.

On your marks, get set… Grow those Tenners!

We need to raise £4000 per year to keep our services running.

This enables Transition Tavistock to pay for insurance and other general running costs, make a contribution to Local Matters rent, rates, utility costs and admin, and support initiatives run by our volunteers such as the growing projects from Roots to Transition and Tasty Tavy.

Donating is easy, just visit, click on the ‘Donate Now’ or ‘Give Monthly’ button, enter you details and you’re all done!

We really appreciate your on-going support!
We would also like to thank the person who is already supporting us on a monthly basis. This is really welcomed and makes a big difference to us.

Unlocking the Power of Community – Energy Fair 2016

Unlocking the Power of Community is the theme for our annual energy fair on Saturday October 15th which will take place in Local Matters community space in Elbow Lane, Tavistock, from 10:00 until 15:00.

This is very apt as we work to complete our Community Solar Project to put community owned solar panels on a number of roofs across the area. These solar roofs enable our host sites to reduce their energy costs and be renewable generators. Any surplus is used to support fuel poverty and energy advice locally.

The local community has come together to raise £110,000 to finance part of the project and we’ll be launching a community share offer later in the year.

Our energy fair will be bringing together local leading local renewable energy suppliers, retrofit specialists and community energy and environmental groups from across Devon and Cornwall including New Generation Energy, The Fell Partnership, Mike Wye (natural building products), Sungift and ZLC Energy and The Utility Warehouse.

Please come along, find out more about what we’re doing at Local Matters, talk to our exhibitors and learn about Tamar Energy Community’s first community financed project.
