This project was funded on 05 Feb 2018!

On the December 12th 2017 thieves broke into our office & stole our truck & lots of tools. Without our truck we cannot get on with all our great projects such as: *Conservation work in nature reserves with volunteers who come out with us because they share our passion for wildlife or maybe because they feel lonely and enjoy the company and fresh air *Gardening in parks with people with mental health difficulties *Teaching gardening skills to local people on a community allotment *Running forest school in local woods giving children freedom & skills to build wonderful memories which they can take with them to adulthood *Working with the local community in parks & gardens researching the best flowers for our bees and pollinators *Working outdoors with families in difficulty helping them build relationships with each other Sadly the insurance company will only give us £6000 for our missing truck and a replacement will cost £10000. We want to ask for your help to raise the extra £4000.

What we'll deliver:

  • Conserve, protect & enhance the Tunbridge Wells nature reserves and greenspaces for the community and for wildlife
  • Provide opportunities for people to volunteer, get outdoors, learn new skills, meet people, & improve health & wellbeing
  • Offer unique projects dedicated to connecting people with nature

Why it's a great idea:

We are a team of 8 passionate people who, along with our volunteers, work really hard to make our green spaces awesome for wildlife and people. Every penny we raise will help give us a vehicle to continue to do our great work. Our vehicle allows us to access our sites and projects, transport the tools and materials we need, and is critical to the overall delivery and function of our organisational goals.

Steps to get it done:

  • Purchasing a new truck

Update (29/1/18): Since starting this campaign our stolen truck was found by police but is sadly a write-off. This does not affect our campaign as we will need to purchase a new vehicle and we still need to raise the extra £4k to do so. So please keep supporting us.
