Make a donation!

As many of you know, we run on a shoe-string budget, and we generally find that we can do a lot with very little money at all.

However, there are some basic costs we have to meet each year, and we'd be very grateful for your donations.

We have set up a local giving account as an easy way to donate, or you can donate via bank transfer or cheque (details here). Donating via Local Giving means that your donation can also have Gift Aid applied. Thank you!

Upcoming events

Monday 30th November: Communications group meeting

CB2 Cafe (upstairs), Norfolk Street 19:30-21:00 add to google calendar
Our main topic for discussion at this meeting will be "what are TC's key messages?" as this relates to all the different forms of communication that we use, including the leaflet we are currently creating, the TV programme that people have been talking about, and of course our bulletin and web-site. We may also consider the kinds of key messages that are useful on stalls. Everyone is very welcome at this meeting, whether you have previously been involved in Transition Cambridge's activities or not.

Saturday 5th December: Transition Cambridge stall on Mill Road Winter Fair

Mill Road, outside the Coop, between Thoday Street and Catharine Street 10:30-16:30 add to google calendar
This year's Transition Cambridge stall at the Mill Road Winter Fair will have a recycling and upcycling theme, including hands on projects (e.g. making wallets from tetrapacks), an area to bring/swap/take last year's unwanted Christmas presents for recycling this year, an area to make recycled Christmas cards, and various other recycling/upcycling activities. So please bring along suitable items for recycling/upcycling, and come by and say hello! Our stall will be near the Coop and St Philip's Church (between Thoday Street and Catharine Street). We're also looking for a few more volunteers for the stall, so please let us know if you can come and approximately what time and for how long (help setting up/clearing up will also be welcome). And if you have an idea for a quick and easy interactive recycling project that will draw people to our stall, let us know or bring it along! For volunteers, we'll provide some guidance on how to engage passers by and how to explain what Transition is about. Hope to see you there!
