Bees Abroad give others a happy Christmas with their cards
5:10pm Thursday 24th November 2011 in Bees
'Bees Abroad is a UK charity that seeks to relieve poverty in developing countries through beekeeping. Bees offer a low cost opportunity to not only provide honey and beeswax which can be used in the home or sold, but they also improve crop pollination in the vicinity of their hives. This has the knock-on effect of improving crop yields and hence the food available for the beekeeper's family.
Bees Abroad works with community groups, using a strong link between the UK project leader and the community chiefs to make every effort to ensure that the project money is spent wisely for the benefit of all.
This year's Christmas cards carry two unique designs by Bees Abroad supporter Sally Fletcher/Pemberton. These have an African feel and are available in packs of six (three each of each design) for £3 plus post & packing which is £1-75 (1-3 packs) or £2.25 (4-8 packs). They can be ordered from the Bees Abroad website (www.beesabroad.org.uk) or by sending a cheque, payable to Bees Abroad, to Veronica Brown, Bees Abroad Administration, PO Box 2058, Bristol BS35 9AF or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org'
