From the folks at Kindling Trust:
We have a mission of a very different kind for our Land Army volunteers on Friday 28th and Saturday 29th November.
For once, we will be inside a warm building, helping out at MERCi’s historic Bridge-5 Mill! We will be helping to clear one floor of this unique environment centre to allow new tenants to move in and help this East Manchester charity generate more income.
Bridge-5 Mill is one of Manchester’s most sustainable buildings, and home to a number of environmental, campaigning and community organisations. Tenants include the Manchester Environmental Education Network, the Federation of City Farms and Community Gardens, the Black Environment Network and Greater Manchester CND. It also provides beautiful meeting and event spaces for hire. All proceeds from tenant and event rates goes back into running the building and MERCi’s own local environmental projects.
So if you relish a rummage, love a tidy up, thrill at recycling, and appreciate good food and good company, join us for a couple of days for all of these and more! You’ll also get a guided tour of the building and hear about its transformation from historic silk mill to a Centre for Change.
Lunch, tea, coffee and cake provided! Email firstname.lastname@example.org to book your place”
