On Wednesday 18 February 2009, Blue Peter is hosting the World’s Biggest Bring and Buy sale at the Lakeside Shopping Centre. The Federation of City Farms and Community Gardens are helping children grow and eat better food through the Blue Peter’s Mission Nutrition appeal. They have joined up with two other charities, Save the Children and ContinYou, to run the appeal.
Mission Nutrition wants to help children around the world to eat well and grow their own food. It’s also a great way to raise the profile of the community farming and gardening movement and the work their members do on a daily basis to promote the benefits of growing for everyone.
If you can’t come along to their bring and buy sale why not organise your own. A fundraising pack is available on the appeal website.
Alternatively, if you are taking part and want to let us know about it why not leave a comment below.
