Our intrepid Chick family have found their way to North Devon. With their faithful 1968 Morris Traveller Mo as their home and vehicle, they set off from Hull back in May to travel ‘Around the UK on a Tenner a Day’. The money they raise will be donated to our charity.
Yes, they’ve had a few mechanical issues on route – but with a lot of support and help from new friends they have met along the way, they have made their way up the north east coast, around Scotland, down into Cumbria and Wales, before hitting the south east coastline.
On their travels, they have come up with a great little idea to promote friendship, adventure, supporting each other and having fun – something we all believe in here at CatZero. We will hand you over to family member Gracie to explain…
Hi there, friends,
This is the Chicks from Round The UK On A Tenner A Day. We’ve been on this journey for over five months now and have travelled over five thousand miles. We set off just as a family trying to make a difference, but from the very beginning right up to where we are now, we have met ordinary but incredible people like yourselves who are truly changing lives in your communities. We’ve learnt from all of you that bringing people together is the answer to so many of the struggles we all face.
You’ve inspired us to share that message with as many people as we can and find our own way to bring people together. We’ve created CommuniTea, events we’ll be organising all over the country on the remainder of our journey and beyond to bring people of all ages and backgrounds together in an environment where everyone is welcome. We’re going to cook a meal, talk about what you have shown us and encourage everyone that we can all be part of making a difference.
We’d love to be able to show them a video message on why you believe in the concept of CommuniTea and bringing people together. Many of you run groups or projects, so if you’d like to do a group message that would be fantastic. Please tell us who you are and promote what you do so that you can inspire others too. If you could start with “I/We believe in CommuniTea because….” and then tell us why in as many or as few words as you like, that would be absolutely great.
You can upload the video to a group we’ve created called ‘I Believe In CommuniTea’ and watch other people’s videos about what CommuniTea means to them. I will put the link here. If you request to join, I’ll add you as quick as I can and then you can get your video message on there.
Thank you so much. All of you remain a huge inspiration to us and your input to CommuniTea would be priceless.
We look forward to hearing from you. Keep up all the amazing work that you do!
Love from The Chick family, Round The UK On A Tenner A Day.
