Samaritan’s Purse & Snowdrop fundraiser

The event was a fundraising fete held at the local church, raising money for two charities, Samaritan’s Purse (International Aid) and Snowdrop Project (helping victims of human trafficking in Sheffield). We raised several hundred pounds which will be divided between the charities (unsure of final total just yet). We had a very busy day and it was lovely to meet more of the local community too.

Bridge End Farm

We had a fantastic Summer event and also Hard-Hat tour day, which you’d made the donations for.
The Hard-Hat tour had over 40 people and the Summer celebration around 125! All packed in to a tiny area that we currently have. I’ve included a few photos of people eating together, listening to a bee-keeping talk, and watching some local young people performing to everyone there.
I also posted on Facebook not long after the event and mentioned Vegware in our post.
We are vey grateful for all the donations and support as always, and it got well used by many people. So many thanks to you and all at Vegware.

Blaise christmas fair

Blasie community gardens had a Christmas Craft day on 3rd Dec.  Blaise aims are both to grow fruit, vegetable and flowers organically for the community and to involve and interest children in food production and the natural world. We shall be helping the children (& their parents!)  to make Christamas ornaments from natural materials.  We shall be serving tea/coffee/juice, mince pies & cakes at theis event.  The event was highly successful last year with a high turnover of visitors. 

Thank you Vegware for donating some of your products to our Christmas Craft Day, which was a great success.  Please see below some photos of the event. 

The event was aimed mostly at children with a view to attracting them into the garden again in the growing season, so that they become more aware of where food comes from and how important the natural world is.  We hope to put up a collage of photos from the event, including the compost heap, to demonstrate how we can all do some recycling.

4 Geeks versus 3 Peaks fundraiser for railway children charity

‘4 Geeks versus 3 Peaks’ are a Scunthorpe and Lincoln based group of fundraisers who will be doing the 3 Mountain Peaks National Challenge next year, and are raising money for the Railway Children; a charity dedicated to helping homeless, runaways and abandoned children who live in and around train stations in the UK and abroad. I would like to ask if you would be able to make a donation to one of our children’s events, the first of which will be an event on Bonfire night (http://bit.ly/glowbugs).

The Glow Bugs event will be targeted to young children and children with learning and physical disabilities, people who are not comfortable around loud bangs, big fires, or lots of people. We will be creating a safe and calm environment with a sensory area with lights and tactile toys recommended by SEN professionals, we will also be having lots of crafts, games, activities, including a glow in the dark disco with UV paints and glow sticks. We are also planning a Superhero/Geek fest for February 2017 and will be needing supplies for this also.

The event went down a storm, It was a pleasure to meet you and thank you very much for all your support and effort in helping us to raise £241 for the Railway Children’s charity!

Branching Out Award Ceremony with Earth for Life

Thanks again for the donation of warm drinks cups and spoons for the Branching Out Award Ceremony.

We held the ceremony in Shielburn woods, Rosewell with participants, their families, the Occupational Therapists, Support Workers, Colin Beattie SNP MSP and Nathalie Moriarty from the Forestry Commission.  We had a great afternoon with soup and music and everyone was suitably impressed with the work Vegware is doing!
