Karma Yoga Day to raise funds for charity in crisis

Help Yourself, Help The Helpers, Help The World…..

Love It Forward

On Earth Day this year, Wednesday 22nd April 2020, Flow Yoga Devon are putting on a Karma Yoga Day to raise essential emergency funds for local charity Estuary League of Friends.

A team of ten local yoga teachers are going to be donating their time and expertise to offer a full day of diverse and nourishing sessions for you and the family to enjoy from online.

The classes will be streamed live on the Event Page, and all donations will go to support the charity in its work supporting the most vulnerable in our community.

Here’s the full schedule for the day

Suggested donation £5 per class or £25 for the whole day.

If you are struggling financially at the moment then you can still help my sharing the event and even asking friends or family to sponsor you!

To register for this event please email gilliesutherland73@gmail.com

So why are we doing this?

One of the most caring and compassionate charities in the area need our help.

And they need it fast.

The Estuary League of Friends are in desperate need of funds in order to keep up the vital work they do in supporting the most vulnerable in our community.

From delivering groceries, medicines and essential supplies to the elderly and disabled, cooking and delivering hot meals to those that are not able to provide for themselves, to taking people to urgent medical appointments, they are stretched to their limit.

Add to this that they have lost their usual income from the Community Hub and the two shops due to the lockdown.

This crisis is likely to continue for some weeks, and in order for the Estuary League of Friends to continue the great services they offer, they are in need of some funding.

So, on Earth Day, a team of Yoga Teachers are coming together and donating their time to offer a full day of sessions for all ages and abilities to do from home.

Every penny of your donation will be going to the Estuary League of Friends to support over 600 of the most vulnerable in our community, so whatever you have to spare would go to a great cause, and at the same time give you and your family a healthy day to spend together.

Where will your money go?

  • £12 could provide a hot, nutritious lunch for an elderly couple self-isolating at home
  • £25 could keep the minibus on the road for a whole day to transport local people with chronic health conditions to and from urgent medical appointments
  • £100 could feed a family of four for a week
  • £500 could fund visits to 30 elderly neighbours who need our help to prepare meals or change the bedding at home 
  • £1,000 could provide grocery and medicine deliveries to 200 vulnerable people in our community who need to self-isolate

That’s why we are appealing to you for help.

Please help us protect the vulnerable in our community by supporting this event or making a donation today to keep these vital services running that we deliver to people in need in Topsham and the surrounding areas.

Thank you for your support!
