As a member of our Bore Place network of partners and supporters, we are contacting you to wish you well during these challenging and unprecedented times.
In addition, we are asking you to consider supporting Bore Place and the work of the Commonwork
Trust to help in safeguarding our future. This message provides further information on our current situation and sets out some possible ways in which you could support us.
Like so many organisations, we are facing an enormous financial challenge due to the COVID-19 emergency. We depend on our events and visitors to pay our staff, maintain the site and to deliver our charitable projects. In the current climate, our main sources of income have all but disappeared overnight. This severe impact on our cash flow means we need to do all we can to secure our future.
We are a not-for-profit organisation, with all income we generate being re-invested in programmes for disadvantaged young people and children, our outdoor learning programmes and in maintaining the beautiful historic Bore Place site for our visitors to enjoy and benefit from. Over the years, hundreds of thousands of visitors and guests have experienced the benefits of spending time in our unique therapeutic environment, to connect with nature and to explore and see first-hand our model for sustainable living.
We appreciate that so many of
you are faced with financial uncertainty and no doubt numerous requests for charitable donations at this time. For the many thousands of you who may have stayed at Bore Place, attended one of our events or courses, been married here, enjoyed the Bore Place walks, or benefited from one of our charitable programmes – we would be hugely grateful if you could consider making a donation if you are able (however small).
