The Wild East Project aims to connect local people with West Ham Park and Wanstead Flats. Using conversation, stories, props and activities, local people will help others explore the hidden and remarkable story of these two green spaces and how they've been beneficial for people and wildlife in East London.Our amazing Wild East tricycles help people to discover nature where they least expect it, right where they are!We are currently recruiting volunteers to support this project.

How to get involved in the #first500 campaign

Good to hear you're looking to find out how you can be a part of the #first500 campaign!  We are hopeful over the next 4 weeks this will snowball (excuse the seasonal pun) and more companies will want to contribute to building the pot, meaning more goals will get backed.  On top of creating real impact locally this will mean we generate some fantastic good-news stories to be shared with companies and their staff in the damp and dark early months of 2017 when, let's face it, we could do with some positive vibes.  - To view a full summary of the #first500 proposal to companies, click here.  - We've currently had some early support from our super-friendly existing clients taking us to £5K, but we're hoping we can rally the troops and raise a lot more. - Funding will only be distributed to groups that operate in locations where the current #first500 funders have offices or an interest. So far those areas are; London, Leeds, Sheffield, Stafford, Manchester and Edinburgh.  We know that's only the start and there's a lot more of the UK to cover, so we're calling out for funders from other areas of the UK to come on board and join in so more areas are open to receive support.  See the map below showing current locations of our #first500 Funders: - If you are a company and would like to donate, firstly that's awesome and secondly please click here to let us know, we'll then follow up directly. Alternatively you can call us on 07769 186120. -
