We deal with almost 1000 cases a year assisting communities, groups and individuals in protecting their local spaces and paths in all parts of England and Wales. Can you help us by joining as a member?
We have partnered with Saraband, the Salford based award-winning independent publisher, as part of a Christmas fundraising initiative. The company represents authors who write about UK landscapes, wildlife, culture and folk traditions. Their titles cover fiction and non-fiction and have included a Booker Prize shortlist entry, the Wainright Prize for nature writing and the Robert Jenkins environmental writing award.
From November Saraband are offering Giving Green charity book bundles that include a donation towards Open Spaces Society and Greenspace Scotland. The book bundles come gift-wrapped with a personalised postcard, so the recipient knows a donation has been made in their name. There are lots of books to choose from – here are just a few you may have heard of:
Graeme Macrae Burnet’s Case Study
Laurence Mitchel’s Westering
J.A. Mensah’s Desmond Elliott Prize-longlisted Castles from Cobwebs
Jim Crumley’s Lakeland Wild
David Howe’s Extraction to Extinction
Roy Dennis’s Mistletoe Winter
Commenting on the joint-venture, Kate Ashbrook says: With no public funding we rely on donations, subscriptions and legacies to support our vital work. We are delighted to have been chosen by Saraband as partners in their Christmas fundraising initiative.’
After everything we have been through during the last two years, when our appreciation for the value that spending time outdoors in open and green spaces can provide heightened, we think this is a satisfying way to gift responsibly and to enjoy and share some wonderful reading time.
