Charities

 

We are delighted to be working with:

 

* Young Kent

 

* The Princes Trust (Chatham)

 

* Avondale Care (who commented as follows):

 

- Staff: "Throughly relaxing time, plenty to do.  Enjoyed the activities and learning bushcraft. Liked having our food cooked over an open fire! Great for a staff activity day.  Thanks for all your hard work."

- Tim: "Lovely reception, exciting car journey through the woods! Lovely calming feeling around the bonfire. Even had it been raining it still would have brought smiles!"

- Dewi: "Really enjoyed the day especially making fires.  All the activities occupied our day and were very interesting."

- Mike: "Enjoyed sitting around the fire, enjoyed learning how to make fires and was very relaxing. Liked the marshmallows!"

- Mandy: "A fun day, nothing was too much trouble for Mark and Dave. Loved the whole experience!"

 

One of the reasons that we set up Wild Times Woodland Adventures as a 'not for profit' Community Interest Company was as a result of our wish to enable people to access the woodland where funding was an issue. 

 

Profits will be ploughed back in to enable charities and/or youth / community groups to attend sessions or an event at a subsidised cost or ideally for free.

 

If you represent a charity or company that is looking to support others combat 'nature deficit disorder' as it has been described* then please do get in touch.
