Thank you to everyone who supported the Open Garden event at the village of Sewards End, Saffron Walden on 10th July. We are delighted to have received a donation of £192 from this event.
We are always keen to engage with new supporters. Contact us, if you have time that you can commit to helping out with project management, fundraising, administration, or simply spreading the word about our work. Some of the ways in which people help to maintain Bees Abroad abilities to develop beekeeping as a sustainable income source are illustrated below.
Our volunteers play a key role in many aspects of running the Charity. There are many roles performed by a few people, so we are always pleased to hear of people who have skills they can bring to our Charity.
For more information on roles that need filling, please go to this page.
About two-thirds of our income comes from grants but the other one-third is generated by smaller donations from supporters, friends and activities. By becoming a supporter of Bees Abroad for £15 per year, you would enable us to support another family.
