Virtual 10km Challenge

We are so pleased to announce that the Country Days Virtual 10k Challenge in December raised £7,000! Thank you so much to our fifty fabulous runners and to all our generous supporters.   

 

Covid 19 has been tough for us all and becoming more active has become increasingly important for mental well-being and the increased physical resilience needed to tackle this pandemic. Sadly, we were not able to offer our usual activity courses last summer so instead we ran a Virtual Fieldwork course providing free online learning with follow-up challenges to complete in an outdoor space. This year, we are planning two courses (during the Easter and Summer holidays) at the Leys Nature Reserve. In order to comply with social distancing measures and run these courses safely, we need:

 

  • 2 more compostable toilets  

  • An additional landing stage and science hut for pond dipping  

  • Our own pond dipping equipment  

Your donations will enable us to make this happen! We are immensely grateful for all your ongoing support.
