Connecting People with Nature
Adults and children are welcome to come along to Charlotte's Wood for this seasonal gathering which is an opportunity for us to get together, celebrate the season and give the donation, raised by my Nordic Walkers this year, to the 'Miniature Donkeys for Wellbeing' Charity. At the start of the session there will be an opportunity to meet and pet some of the Mini-Donks from the charity and then we will gather at the camp fire for a sing-along with mulled wine, hot chocolate and mince pies! Come along to celebrate and share seasonal good cheer. All profits from the event will be donated to the Miniature Donkeys for Wellbeing charity: https://www.minidonks.org.uk/

About Charlotte's Wood
Charlotte's Wood is a place where people can connect with nature. It is a tranquil, privately owned woodland in the heart of rural East Anglia - large enough to lose yourself in but not large enough to get lost in! The woodland has a path running around the perimeter that makes it accessible for wheelchairs and pushchairs. Next to Charlotte's Wood are two luxury holiday lodges and a cosy log cabin sits on the woodland edge. The cabin is used as a venue for meetings and training and as a meeting point and shelter during woodland activities. It can also be hired as a place to stay.

At the woodland Charlotte facilitates various activities and events for adults and children throughout the year. The overarching aims of these are to provide meaningful nature connection experiences for all in order to promote physical and emotional wellbeing, to bring people to...
