11 Mar Planet Freewheelers
Went with Viv to Graeae, for a workshop about fundraising. First of all, they gave us some wool, cloth and cardboard and told us to make a model called “Planet Freewheelers”. Planet FW was an awe- inspiring sight. On the top of it, we put a bright pink cardboard picnic plate, which we had cut in curves to make it spin like a windmill- this represented the Rosy Future of Freewheelers, spinning out of sight !
In the afternoon we had to think of something else to symbolise the company. We decided Freewheelers is like an oasis, where lots of good things (and people) come together, to make a place which strengthens and refreshes everyone. Water, food, shelter, and good company all play an important part in the oasis, just like at FW everyone works as a team. And it’s a place where you carry on from, re-vitalised.
How does this link with fundraising? Not sure…..Ask Viv……….
