Donations made to the charities during a week of giving around Earth Day on Saturday (April 22) have been doubled, thanks to the Big Give Green Match Fund, a national fundraising campaign which aims to increase the impact of environmental charities.

Infrastructure campaigner Josh Grantham has been leading on the project which has already provided advice and support to groups in areas including Arbury, West Chesterton, Histon and Impington, Willingham and Swavesey.

A free community workshop gathering ideas for better walking and cycling in Girton also took place on Saturday (April 22) in the village’s pavilion

Josh said: “It has been really rewarding to work with local communities on ideas that will help people choose sustainable transport for more of their everyday journeys.

“However, with better walking and cycling routes desperately needed across the county, there is still so much more to do. If you want to see safer, greener streets in a neighbourhood near you, please give what you can so we can continue to support local ideas for change.”

To give to the charities and double your donation, visit biggive.org by midday this Thursday (April 27) and search for the two charities’ personalised campaign pages.
