AHEAD is a “UK-based charity initiating and supporting projects aimed at combating poverty and inequalities in health, education and development in Oromia and Southern regions in Ethiopia. The charity also strives to address the needs of disadvantaged members of society in London, through advice, guidance, mentoring and training.”

They are having their annual charity bike ride and walk on Saturday June 10th, starting from the green area here on Elmfield.

They say:

“Please join us at our annual summer event to raise funds to support our newly opened girls’ hostel in Shakiso Town, Southern Oromia. Without a well established hostel these girls cannot attend secondary school. Come and enjoy a great day out across the old and new of North East London; keep fit, and support a great cause!”

The route is a quiet traffic free ride on flat cycle paths with no motorised traffic. Suitable for all ages and abilities. Walk Route: Walthamstow & Hackney Marshes”

If you’d like to adopt a tree near to your home, let Cliff know and – so long as it doesn’t compromise access – he’ll build a planter like this that you can look after.
