10,000 steps a day in March to Walk All Over Cancer? Think we can do it? Sure we can! Our CEO & a team of determined souls will be raising funds to help ‘walk all over cancer’ this March for Cancer Research UK. Please take a look and support us in any way you can, we can beat it, but only together! Please support us here!
On Tuesday 12th March, our Shop and Café will be closed to the public for our annual Land Day/Spring Clean-Up Day. This is an opportunity for us to work together to clean our workshops and houses. Any unwanted items will be upcycled or offered to other charities. In the afternoon we will all share lunch together before getting to work on projects to tidy our land.
