Put your Spring clear out to good use and help us raise funds!

Thursday, 28 May 2020

Have you been using this time in lockdown as an opportunity for a Spring clear out?

If the answer's yes, please think about using those unwanted items to help us raise much needed funds for Woodcraft Folk.

EBay has launched a Big Charity Sell where you can sell your unwanted items and opt for up to 100% of the proceeds to be donated directly to a charity of your choice.

According to eBay UK an estimated £51 million worth of unwanted items have been thrown away during lockdown.

Upcoming Online Programme

Tuesday, 26 May 2020

So far we have enjoyed a wide variety of online sessions with participants ranging from Cardiff to Edinburgh to Exeter of all ages. 

Last weekend we enjoyed the #BigCampIN where many camped in their gardens, living rooms, kitchens and balconies and joined live sessions based on activities we would usually take part in at a 'real' camp. 

In the coming months around our usual national online programme we will have themed weeks and weekends where we will have focused activities. The upcoming monthly themes are:

Discussion about IFM-SEI and international volunteering

We will also talk about about volunteering opportunities through the European Solidarity Corps programme funded by the EU, with lots of time for discussion and questions. We hope many of you will join!
