This can provide 120 children with a place on a Nature Nurture programme during this year. A programme consists of 20 sessions delivered on a weekly basis to groups of 10 children. One session per child costs £60; a programme of sessions per child costs £1200; a programme per group of 10 children costs £12,000.[/p] [p]The first major event to get our fund raising campaign rolling is participation in the Edinburgh Marathon. If you would like to make a contribution to the fund by sponsoring me, please follow the 'Donate now' links. Every penny makes a difference.[/p] [p]Fund raising activities will include other high profile events throughout the year and I’ll keep you up to date with progress on a regular basis.[/p]
