10k Run Publicising 

Stuart & Duncan Garde and Joanne & Michael Mendoza

Sunday 10th September sees the return of the Earth Trust 10k and we really need help to get the word out! Would you be happy to take some posters/flyers to your local sports club or gym? Perhaps you are in the vicinity of some local shops that might be happy to take some? The more people we have to help spread the word the better chance we have of more people signing up and raising money for our charity. Anyone out there who might be able to help,
we would love to hear from you! You can also register your interest to help out on the day when we'll need volunteer marshals, assistance with registering runners and people to hand out the all important goody bags at the end.

Are you handy?

We're in need of some extra pairs of hands to help us keep the Earth Trust Centre looking in tip top shape. The list of tasks is ever growing and we just don't have the people power to tick things off it! We're talking grounds maintenance, a spot of fixing things (e.g. the bike shed roof), and keeping the gardens and car parks looking neat, tidy and safe. If this sounds like your kind of thing, drop us a line to the usual address.

'Wood' you like to help us? Volunteer carpenter required!

Across the Earth Trust Farm we have 35 pedestrian gates, 75 vehicle gates, 16 benches and 22 information boards, as well as bird hides, boardwalks and countless other wooden structures. With over 150,000 visits to the site every year, they are well used! We’re looking for someone who’d be able to help us with carrying out ongoing repairs. Someone with woodworking skills and experience would be fantastic as well as a more general practical skills and a 'can do' attitude. We can provide space in our workshop, tools, any PPE needed and lots of cups of tea! The work would make a huge difference to the Trust and the visitors to our site. If you’re interested please get in touch.
