Charity Registration No. 1155536

Story


I have been volunteering with the Churchyard Task Team at Caring for God's Acre for about a year now. It's great fun learning how to use a scythe, lay hedges and build dry stone walls.  All in the peace and tranquillity of ancient churchyards and burial grounds, surrounded by the beauty of nature and the sound of birdsong. Often these places have undisturbed flora and fauna going back thousands of years. As mass extinction gathers pace these burial grounds across our land are becoming precious last remaining havens of biodiversity. So please consider sponsoring me in support of this wonderful charity, whose work supports this one wonderful world we are blessed with. 

UPDATE
