Listen to the show:
In this week’s show we talk about our visit to Sidmouth and the morning we spent with Friends of the Byes who look after their green spaces with love and care.
We go onto talk about Wayne Dixon and Koda and their travels around the country litter picking and how this sparked an immediate response from Portreath who have started their own #loveportreath #keepitclean beach cleaning campaign for locals and visitors to Portreath.
We then shine the spotlight on the digital platform Beam which helps homeless people rebuild their lives by getting them back into work. Homeless people are nominated to take part in the scheme by one of Beam’s 10 partner organisations – all registered charities. Beam then helps people choose a training path that suits them, and sets up a funding campaign.
Local news is next, with some examples of how we can all help those in need in our community including the Reverse Advert Calendar to support the local feedback and PATH’s Shoebox Appeal.
