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!

Pollinating Change, 22nd July

Tuesday 7th July: Transition Cafe: "Seek the Change" with Emily Dunning

Friends Meeting House, Jesus Lane, CB5 8BA 19:30
Emily Dunning has just returned from a 6-month trip travelling overland via the Trans-Mongolian Expressway to China, and then via several more countries to New Zealand. During her travels she met up with various people working on sustainability initiatives, from youth climate action groups in Taiwan to clean-up events in Russia to the social enterprise ethos inspiring change in Japan. She'll tell us about the joys and challenges of such a long overland journey, and the inspiration she took from the many sustainability projects she visited along the way. To find out more about what she's been up to, have a look at her blog seekthechange.org. Free, all welcome. If you'd like to help out with the cafe, please get in touch!
