|Junction 2 Festival|
Charity Partner and local community ticket raffle announced.
Aside from the festival itself, Junction 2 Festival is aspiring to have a positive impact on the local community around Boston Manor Park.
There will be 50 pairs of tickets given out to local residents to encourage cohesion between the festival and those in the local community. In order to enter, entrants must email firstname.lastname@example.org, with the winners drawn on 10th May 2017.
In addition, the festival will also be fundraising for local charity Nature Links through guestlist donations.
Through their outdoor play sessions, inspired by the Forest School approach, Nature Links uses allocated spaces within Hounslow borough to create community learning spaces that encourage families to be active, connect with local nature and with their neighbours. The Forest School approach raises self esteem and confidence by providing opportunities for child led play and discovery learning in nature. Spending time outside has been proven to have benefits for mental, emotional and physical health and wellbeing.
Nature Links will use the donation to update their adventure kit and continue their mission through providing more outdoor play opportunities for the boroughs residents.
"Our classroom has no walls, no doors and no limits. We get muddy, we look for worms, we have fun but our play is purposeful. Thank you very much indeed for choosing us to make a donation to. While we are a small not for profit organisation, we have a big vision" - Nature Links Director Heidi Magill
