Charlotte Church issues plea for help as her alternative school is ousted from forest home | Celebrity News | Showbiz & TV
Pop star Charlotte Church has issued an urgent plea on Instagram after her husband Jonathan Powell’s bid to “change education” was put on hold.
It comes as the star’s charity’s permission to access the Welsh woods was revoked.
The Woodland Trust said they had to make the decision “sadly” due to health and safety breaches by the Awen Project, which was founded by the Welsh singer in 2019.
The charity, which aims to support “learning communities”, was operating at woods located between the village of Michaelston-le-Pit and the town of Powys in South Wales.
Charlotte asked her 137,000 followers to help her find a new location for her project, saying it ended up being a “rollercoaster”.
A Forest Trust spokesman said: “Sadly, and after much discussion, we have decided to end the current permission granted to the Awen Project for their use of Cwm George & Casehill Woods.
“This is due to multiple breaches of this permit, which have caused health and safety concerns for our visitors and wildlife within the ancient woodland.
“However, we have offered a new Forest Schools license which sets out a new future arrangement which is consistent with the fact that Cwm George is publicly accessible woodland, managed for people and wildlife.”
In a statement to Instagram, Charlotte wrote that the Awen Project “desperately” needs a new home to carry out the charity’s work.
Charlotte shared a photo of the school alongside a caption, which said: “WE NEED YOUR HELP!
“We have lost our home.”
He then said: “Do you have land we could use? Or can you contribute to help us find our own? Shares are appreciated!”
Charlotte also wrote: “Hello dear! My amazing educational charity @the_awen_project needs your help. They have lost their beautiful woodland home in South Wales and are in desperate need of a new place to run the project from. .
“Despite our efforts to preserve an effective and mutually beneficial partnership with @woodlandtrust, unfortunately they have revoked our license agreement, meaning we can no longer deliver our results to the children and families we support or we are trying to change how we access. excellent education for all children.
“It was a rollercoaster – and we tried so hard to stay where we were – but as a very small charity we couldn’t keep up against the big people.
“If you have any land in Barra, Caher, Penarth, Cardiff or the general South Wales area, please contact them directly.
“Alternatively, if you have any advice, suggestions or solutions we’d love to hear from you too. You can also make a donation through their website to help them find a new home. Thank you!”
She punctuated the post by adding the hashtags: “#TheAwenProject #DemocraticEducation #Woodland #Education.”
