Litter picking is a really worthwhile activity and a great way to spend a morning, getting out into beautiful green spaces, learning the history and meeting other lovely and likeminded people.
We are very fortunate to have the emergency services come and help us litter pick the beautiful and historic Carriage Drive. They will also be discussing the dangers of litter from causing fires to injury to people and wildlife. We’d love your help as this is a particularly littered spot but is so beautiful and steeped in history. It deserves to be restored to its natural state.
We provide all the equipment but you may want to bring some gardening or work type gloves and wear long sleeves/legs and sturdy footwear.
Healthy Minds are exploring ‘the impact and demand on the voluntary sector’. Chief Officer, Jonny Richardson-Glenn, will be giving a talk to help educate on the challenges faced in the voluntary sector, and what to do about it.
Come and meet local, regional and national funders and give your organisation a head start. A market stall style event, funders will have a dedicated stall where you can find out about:
• Current funding opportunities • Information on eligibility criteria • The application and monitoring process • The additional application support they can offer • Deadlines • Funding amounts
