Thank you! On Earth Day we launched an appeal to help more children be inspired to learn through nature, and thanks to you we’ve raised an incredible £10,523! Our match donors kindly donated their full matching funds, and together with your donations and gift aid we’re now able to reach hundreds of families this summer – thank you so much.
After a year of lockdowns, remote learning and isolation, many children have struggled to engage with learning and to cope with the uncertainty that the pandemic has brought. So, this Earth Day we’re launching an appeal to help children reconnect, build resilience and be inspired to learn again through nature.
We’re working to provide a programme of face-to-face, online and self-led outdoor activities to help children recover. These sessions and online resources could reach and inspire 600 children in person and thousands online – but we need your help to make it a reality.
This Earth Day, thanks to our funding partners, your gift could have twice the impact. The Rowse Family Trust and the Lucy Group have kindly agreed to match the first £5,000 donated before midday on Friday 30th April – so your gift could help twice as many children this summer.
Our new, sustainably-built Earth Lab is nearly ready to welcome students and inspire environmental learning, and, with your support, our experienced tutors will be able to create online and offline sessions that engage children and young people at all levels. Please, will you support our appeal today and help deliver this programme to those who need it most?
Together, we can turn this year around for children affected by the pandemic.
