Supporters’ Update – October

Debs McCahon, Chief Executive, and Pip Sayers, Chair of General Council, shared their latest update for Woodcraft Folk supporters at an online session on 14 October.

On behalf of the Board, Pip expressed appreciation for the hard work of volunteers and staff across the organisation who had worked to maintain activities, groups, centres and projects throughout the last 18 months.

Pip and Debs shared recent highlights with the meeting, including:

  • thirteen new groups registered, including a number of new DF groups
  • the conclusion of the Ingenious project, funded by the Royal Academy of Engineering, which saw volunteers working in engineering deliver sessions to schools and Woodcraft Folk groups addressing solutions to the climate crisis
  • grant funding obtained from the Julia & Hans Rausing Trust to support the successful reopening of Woodcraft Folk’s outdoor centres
  • the success of the summer outreach programme delivered in Hammersmith & Fulham as part of the Holiday Activities & Food programme
  • welcoming new members to the staff team, including Tracy Cleveland (Cudham Centre Co-ordinator), Millie Burgh (Common Ground Assistant), and Kay Millard (Centres Administrator)

Pauliina Keinanen, Common Ground Project Manager, joined the call to give an update on the progress of plans for Common Ground in summer 2022. Pauliina shared an appeal for experienced volunteers who would be willing to buddy up with groups coming to a large camp for the first time.

The recording of the session can be watched back on Woodcraft Folk’s YouTube channel.
