Other Events

On top of the bigger events we get involved in, there are a number of day to day things we get involved in, including raising funds, making small donations and helping out with national and internation campaigns.

 

Tin shaking for Marie Curie Cancer Care

Every year we enjoy collecting money for Marie Curie at Martins Heron Tescos in Bracknell. Wearing silly yellow hats and smiling to everyone who comes through the doors. Thanks to all for your generosity!

From their website:

"Bracknell foodbank is part of a national network of foodbanks, giving out nutritionally balanced emergency food to people in crisis who have nowhere else to turn.
We also offer additional support to help break the cycle of poverty, putting people in touch with relevant agencies who can offer further support."

 

Rebuilding homes in Sri Lanka:

 Bracknell Forest Lions raised funds in 2008 and 2009 to help rebuild these homes in Sri Lanka afte they were destroyed by the Tsunami.

 Planting Trees for a Guiness World Record Attempt:

 December 2009 members and friends of Bracknell Forest Lions Club helped out with the Guiness Record attempt called Tree O'Clock

There's more information about the challenge here but in short it was a challenge to break the world record of how many trees could be planted all over the world in one hour. It was great fun and a very hands on way to get involved with local ecology.
