A massive thank you

Hirst Wood Nature Reserve is a community asset, designed to give local residents and visitors a great place to visit and relax. From the first it was planned to make entrance completely free. As a voluntary group with no income apart from sponsorships, grants and donations, Hirst Wood Regeneration Group has been conscious of the need to make provision for the future running
costs. We needed to cover items like insurance and repairs So, on opening day we arranged a bric-a-bac sale and also had our volunteers going round with the collecting bucket. And what a wonderful response we got,  despite the dreadful weather, we raised £570.84. Than you to everyone who contributed. In addition, we were delighted to receive an email from saying: ‘Get Out More CIC would like to make a donation of £200 to Hirst Wood Regeneration Group.  ‘As you know we are a social enterprise which means that when we make a profit we reinvest that into the community.  Our outdoor programmes made a small profit last year so we'd like to share some of that with you, as a community organisation doing great things to support the environment and communities in places where we also work. ‘
