With your support we’d like to help more people who are feeling lonely this winter
In June we announced our campaign to help support people who are facing loneliness and so far, we have raised £12,000 towards our target of £40,000. This will be used to fund TCV’s conservation projects all across the country, helping people to make that natural connection with their local community.
Throughout the winter The Conservation Volunteers will continue to use the universal appeal of nature to tackle loneliness and bring people and communities closer together.
For most people this festive season is about spending time with loved ones however, nearly 400,000 older people across Britain said that they feel worried about spending the festive season alone (Research by Age UK).
This winter and into the new year we are appealing to our donors to help us reach our target, and with your help we can. Every penny donated to TCV is always gratefully received and carefully spent and we would like to thank-you for your generosity in supporting our fundraising campaigns.
TCV’s conservation projects help people to make that natural connection with their local community which is why our campaign is so important.
During 2017, we’ve been busy helping people to engage in activities in their local green spaces, especially when they are feeling lonely or isolated. We’ve helped 127,000 people to transform 1,500 green spaces, through 15,000 different projects, from planting trees and wild flower meadows, to building stiles, clearing footpaths or creating new food growing projects.
Our varied projects are often ideas from our volunteers and TCV helps them to achieve their ambitions to benefit their community. We are very proud of how effectively our work transforms local green spaces and in doing so brings people and communities closer together.
Thank you very much for thinking about making a donation to support our work connecting people to nature. Every penny really does help!
