Your Forest needs you!
Do you live in or near the Forest of Marston Vale? Well if you live anywhere from Milton Keynes to Bedford then the answer is yes, you do and we need your help.
The Forest of Marston Vale is a charity and since the early 1990s we’ve been planting trees to transform the landscape and make the Forest of Marston Vale a thriving place to live, work and play. We’ve planted over 1 million trees, but our vision (and it’s a pretty big vision) is to plant 5 million, but to do that we need to raise money.
So I’m looking for people to help me fundraise for the Forest. Whether you care about the environment or wildlife, have spare time to fill and want to get out of the house and meet people or just want something that looks good on your CV – then fundraising for the Forest is the answer.
There’s lots of ways you can help our fundraising efforts…
Organise local fundraising events – arrange something in your local area, anything from a quiz night, pamper evening, dog show, golf tournament or cake sale. I can give you lots of ideas and support you.
Be a collection box distributor – drop off collection boxes to local businesses and then collect them (hopefully when they’re full)
Street collectors – you can do collections at lots of shops and businesses, it’s a great way of raising awareness of the Forest as a charity and raising some funds.
Be part of our fundraising events – I’m always looking for people to help at our events; sell raffle tickets, hold a collection bucket, man stalls for example.
Sponsored events – if you like more of a challenge would you like to a do a sponsored activity for us, maybe a tandem skydive or bike ride or even something less physical – a sponsored silence or shave your hair off?!
Or maybe you’ve got ideas of your own?
Whether you’ve got a regular time slot to spare each week or month, or just want to dip in and out and help when you can, then you really will be helping our fundraising efforts and I want to speak to you. In return you’ll have the satisfaction of helping grow the future of the Forest and I can offer you lots of ideas and support and the occasional cup of tea and slice of cake!
