Provide a safe, wildlife-friendly space for those suffering from mental health problems, take care of our environment and rescue hens
This will pay for long-term materials and facilities that we need to keep this project up and running; seeds, gardening equipment, food, drinks, diesel and much, much more. These are the little things that people don't generally think about with a project such as this but where would we be, if when our visitors (we don't call them clients as they can visit anytime they like and visitors is more amenable) came to see us they could not sit down with a cup of tea or coffee, that's half the battle! Extra money means the project can run and run and run and help people and save hens, so thank you, thank you, thank you.
Our new project in West Yorkshire is to set to connect people and the active care of our environment, together; we help people carry on their lives after being hurt and judged by mental health issues. We are also becoming a re-homing site for hens that have been hurt by the system too - the combination of the two works so well; helping each other people and animal alike.
We are following on from our success in Wales at our main site after we utilised the ideas of combining protecting our environment, animals and all that lives within it, alongside changing people and hens' lives too. We (alongside many other charities) have all proved, beyond a doubt, that 'nature heals'.
We have bought some land in West Yorkshire and need help with sheds and summer houses, fencing, tracks, pathways and much, much more, to provide a place for people to feel safe and carry out their projects and volunteer work - to heal through actively being involved in the protection of wildlife and land. This land has been saved from a housing development and it will retain the natural flora and fauna that have appeared in the short time that we have owned it. We hope it will be a magical place to come to.
We use organic growing of fruit and vegetables, guided walks, caring for our rescued animals, arts and crafts and managing the land, to help those in need. We have great ideas for the future and so do our visitors! We would love to set up places like these all over West Yorkshire.
We are a registered charity who is looking for funding and donations in order to bring our Wildspace, Wildlife, Wildhelp project to LIFE!
We found these tiny Forget-me-not's at the new site and knew then it was the right land for our new project 'Wildspace, Wildlife, Wildhelp.'
Can you help?
With SO many thanks,
