Collect and Connect to Nature with Coop Local Community Fund

We are lucky to be supported by Brookfield (Ashford) Coop this year. Funds raised will benefit local schools and groups, by providing day visits to Kench Hill using our minibus for transport. Local teachers told us that despite living in rural locations, children lack contact with the natural world, have poor eating habits and may lead a sedentary lifestyle. The project will raise awareness of our facility to local users and be sustainable in the future.

You can support us by joining the Coop and selecting our cause. https://membership.coop.co.uk/causes/18781/
