I saved a bumble bee trapped in my kitchen yesterday, and it made me think of spring and the sunnier days of summer ahead. We have loads of great days out to share with you, our fundraising coordinator Gillian has been hard at work getting dates in the diary, so here's a run down of what we have planned this year so far. The dates are all confirmed, but the event details may still be subject to change, (e.g. food options etc) so stay tuned for the latest news. Please follow the links to the events on Facebook. If you require further information, please contact us here.
