We're holding a virtual relay event on Sunday 11th April to raise funds for a replacement minibus.

Run, walk, cycle or even kayak as many miles as you can on the 11th April to take part in Meaningful Miles!

Our aim is to get enough people together to cover the distance between our Suffolk woodland locations at Lawshall, Martlesham Heath and RSPB Minsmere (just under 81 miles) and if we get more people, we'll just see how many times we can go round! (As with all of our adventures we're going nature-based and measuring that as the crow flies!) 😉

If you're feeling energetic and would like to commit to doing a number of those miles by running, cycling, walking, kayaking, swimming - or whatever method you decide on that doesn't involve the use of a vehicle - then we'd love you to join in.

Any contribution, long or short - whatever you're able to do - is appreciated, so don't feel as if you need to run a marathon!

All you have to do is: 

- Set aside the date - 11th April - in your diary

- Decide how many miles you'd like to travel and how and where you will do it (Covid-safely please!)

-Register as a user on our website - press the Login option at the bottom of our Home screen and choose Register to enter your details. You should be able to upload a profile photo once you've verified your registration and logged in

- Set up a Fundraiser page (here), make sure you indicate in your text on the page how far you're going to travel and how. A photo of you on the page would be fantastic!

- Send the link to your fundraiser page to all your work colleagues, friends and family and ask them to sponsor you. Social media is fantastic for this, and do tag us in the post!

If you have any trouble setting up any of the fundraiser details, please email [email protected] to receive a response during office hours.

On the 11th April, we'd love for you to make a short *video clip to send to us when you finish your miles - in as best quality as possible please (although we expect an element of panting!). We're planning to put together a montage of all the clips to post onto our social media channels and would love for everyone to feature. The clip only needs to be a few seconds long and you should film yourself saying something like:

"I'm … [your name] and I've just … [run, cycled, etc] … [number of miles] for Green Light Trust"
