Thanks to the generosity of donors (including a good number of Aviva employees), the charity People Need Nature has reached its £3000 target for fundraising via the #savingourwildisles Aviva UK community crowdfunder, to support the Poundbury Nature for Wellbeing project. This pilot project will use nature-based activities to help local people struggling with the mental health.
We still have 3 weeks of fundraising left.
We’re now aiming to reach £5000 raised through the Crowdfunder. Remember, for every pound donated via Crowdfunder, Aviva will triple the donation.
The extra funds will enable the charity to take on more practitioners, offer a wider range of activities and run longer courses over a greater time period.
As this is a pilot project, if they raise enough extra funds they can bring in statistics experts to support work evaluating the impact of the different nature-based activities on the participants mental health and wellbeing, using a mix of quantitative and qualitative methods. Analysing data like this is expensive but it is also vital to show which activities are delivering the most improvement.
