Enabling local people and local businesses to get involved in Tackling Climate Change - working towards a cleaner and greener Thame for all

by Sue Martin-Downhill in Thame, Oxfordshire, United Kingdom

We're still collecting donations

On the 12th March 2022 we'd raised £950 with 6 supporters in 69 days. But as every pound matters, we're continuing to collect donations from supporters.

This Crowdfunder is to enable the community of Thame, and surrounding areas, to respond to Climate Change on a local level. 

Thame already leads the way - being the first market town (that we know of) to adopt a 'Green Living Plan'. But it is more than just a plan! Multiple organisations throughout Thame have already taken action to bring change for the climate. Just some of these are: 

  • #ThameTrees led by 21st Century Thame, 
  • Thame Drive Electric led by Thame Green Living, 
  • Thame COP26 led by Wild Pear CIC,
  • Chinnor and Thame Friends of the Earth

There is so much more to be done and we want to enable this to happen. 

Support this crowdfunder with as little as £5 - if enough people of Thame do this we can fund more projects to plant trees, create hedgerow corridors, initiate research into local flooding with temperature changes, encourage changes in behaviour to clean up our air quality - and so much more.

This project is a partnership between 21st Century Thame and Thame Green Living.
