Community Chest funding for Solar powered trailer
Leading Link are delighted to have received substantial funding from Northumberland County Council's Community Chest scheme towards a solar powered and renewable energy trailer.
The Community Chest have awarded Leading Link funding to build a solar powered trailer to accompany us on our NRG project, funded by the Postcode Lottery, out in to the dark woods.
From October 2017 we have been working with a group of young people to learn the skills of bush craft, working with the environment with only a spade to help. They've learned how to build survival shelters, make a fire safely, cook outdoors with wild foods and stay safe. These young people have embedded their skills by facilitating a group of young
er peers at Brockwell Woods and teaching them the skills they have learnt.
And now for the fun bit! Community Chest funding will allow us to build a trailer with solar panels and mini windturbines. We have identified young people really love learning about this as they will be able to charge their phones, listen to music and shed some light in the dark woods.
We have an action packed year around the environment and renewable energy. Keep your eye o
