I'm just a regular mum and homemaker with a huge dream; to re-wild women for their personal, professional and environmental gain.
I plan to use the money raised via this appeal to cover costs ( e.g. training, insurance, equipment, ground permits and hire etc) associated with establishing experiences, camps and outside stays that will give females the chance to take part in a range of outdoorsy activities (including survival/bushcraft skills) alongside soft skill development (e.g., confidence building and professional development exercises) to leave them feeling empowered, motivated and surprised at their own abilities.
I would love to raise enough funds to target specialist groups and offer such sessions at a reduced rate, or even free, to female orientated charities (e.g. breast or ovarian cancer research and care, eating disorders, domestic violence, PND etc) in the hope of giving an interesting as well as physically and mentally supportive experience for participants outside of their normal therapeutic plan.
The benefits of being active outside are widely known but in today's busy society less and less of us are easily able to step into the wilds; i'd love to be the provider of accessible, beneficial and 'wild' workshops to women...the possibilities are endless once the groundwork is in place.
