To celebrate my sixtieth birthday, I’m walking sixty miles to raise money for the brilliant Sheffield Environmental Movement. To quote from their website:
SEM’s ethos is to work with Black Asian, Minority Ethnic and Refugees (BAMER) communities and environmental organisations to ensure everyone has a clean healthy environment and access to open green spaces such as parks that would promote a good quality of life. To ensure a ‘fair green deal’ for individuals to help them develop resilient and prosperous communities by ensuring the environmental sector listens to and is guided by all parts of society including people who feel ‘invisible’ and marginalised.
