Just like a real seed, The Mustard Seed charity, has grown from strength to strength.
We’ve now built a school consisting of six classrooms and a surgery on the island of Tisai in Uganda, which employs six teachers.
We’ve provided three more water harvesters, fed the children porridge, rice and beans each morning, and accomplished many other projects to support the people of Tisai.
With good links to Ruddington’s infant and junior schools, we also teach local children how sustainable development can improve the lives of our own and different communities and make a difference to the whole planet, from the UK to Uganda – sharing seeds, sustainability and kindness across the world!
Our 8km Charity Walk on Sunday 9th October 2022 will continue to support this work. So, please join us to try out some less familiar walking routes around the fields of Ruddington, whilst raising funds for sustainable vegetable gardens at the Tisai school and other development projects in rural Uganda.
On the day, we’ll be unveiling our amazing charity telephone box on Church Street, which is being transformed into a seed library. The box will be transformed into something spectacular and there’ll be some great photo opportunities!
You and your family can also enjoy a bring-your-own picnic and a ‘Bear Scavenger Hunt’ as part of the day.
We hope that this event will enable us to teach our local children about sustainability, which reflects our ethics that “A small seed can go a long way”.
Join the Charity Walk
The Charity Walk will meet at our new phone box on Church Street at 9:45am on Sunday 9th October, with the walk starting at 10am. Afterwards, tea and cake will be available to purchase from Parker’s Yard at the Framework Knitters’ Museum.
It costs £5 per person or £10 per family to join the walk. Please bring cash on the day. Please also note that all walkers/groups will be asked to sign a waiver before starting the walk.
