Education Days for Disadvantaged Children

Coronavirus has had a massive impact on the education of every child across the country. It is widely acknowledged that children with existing financial or social disadvantage have been affected most by the schools closing. We are working with schools to offer holiday club and educational day visits for pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds at our lovely centre. All donations will go directly towards the running costs of these days, providing subsidised or free days for those most in need.

Goal: £1000Raised: £0

Nature Reserve signs and map

We have just opened our nature reserve up to the public for all of the local community to enjoy. We would love to update our map, and install some signposts to guide people round the woodpecker walk. All donations will go towards the design, materials and installations for the signs.

Goal: £1000Raised: £165
