HELP PLEASE

My friend's mum Sonya is moving house to a smaller apartment as she has cancer. She needs to weed her gully before she moves. Unfortunately due to her ill health she is unable to do this at this time. I was hoping you might forward this email around your networks and volunteers, and I will forward it to other gully weeding/planting groups.

We are having a weeding morning on Saturday the 5th of December from 9am until 12pm (or earlier if it is finished earlier) for her section of the gully. People are more than welcome to come late or leave early, as suits them. We are hoping to have as many people come along to help as possible.
