Othona Bradwell Yurt Renewal Appeal

Life at Othona Bradwell did exist before we had the yurts –so would you like to see them disintegrate and fade away? Believe it or not, our five yurts have stood up to the wind and weather for nine years, but will they last another decade? Or even another year?

Your help – your generous donations – will help re-clothe our saintly-named yurts, Aidan, Brigid, Cedd, Dunstan and Ethelburga, in new canvas covers, clean, waterproof and fit for our summer visitors. Two of our Saints will also be refitted inside, to be warm and cosy for the colder seasons.

Although the total will be £25,000, the fund-raising efforts of our resident team have already sourced a Grant for £12,000. Now you – we -  the Othona Membership and Friends, need to dig into our pockets to find the shortfall - £13,000.  We always do it, because Othona means so much to all are who already part of this amazing Community, and will mean so much to those we enable to stay in future.

Please give what you can: don’t feel your small donation will make little difference; and some of you may be able to give a more, according to your means. The plan is to have the re-covering of these five yurts, and the upgrading of two, completed before the summer Season 2024.
