An environmental education charity has scooped a £3,500 grant towards a series of activity days to bring together children from military families and the community.

Bosses at The Green Light Trust, in Lawshall, says the Ministry of Defence Community Covenant grant will provide the majority funding for its Eco Discovery Activity Programme.

Focusing on environmental education and outdoor discovery, the seven activity days at Frithy Wood and the charity’s Eco Learning Centre aims to bring the military and civil communities together.

Ashley Seabourne, chief executive of Green Light Trust, said: “It enables us to deliver some practical activity and develop new partnerships with the military community.”
