GURNARD LIONS DONATE TO LOCAL CHARITY FOLLOWING SPONSORED LITTER PICK


Gurnard Lions Under 9’s Football Team completed a sponsored litter pick last Saturday (13th April) to raise funds to travel to the mainland to play matches.

As well as doing a fantastic job looking after their local environment, the children also chose to donate to local charity The Footprint Trust, which works to help low-income families to reduce energy costs in the home.

Helen Stichbury from The Footprint Trust said:

“It was wonderful to meet the boys to receive our cheque. It is vital to engage young people in taking responsibility for the natural environment, we could all learn from their enthusiasm”.

The Trust helps over 1,000 local people every year saving some £100,000 in energy and water costs. The Trust very much welcomes donation from local organisations and individuals.

For those who wish to support, but at no real financial cost, can donate used postage stamps. The Trust has set a target of collecting a tonne over the next 2 years, which would raise some £20,000. The Trust can be contacted by email [email protected] or by calling 01983 822282.
