Why should I donate?

The Manningtree Earth Festival is a free community event, aimed at inspiring and educating visitors to take practical action to support climate and the environment. These actions needn’t be costly or complicated and we hope that the Manningtree Festival will open your eyes to AT LEAST ONE CHANGE that you can implement straight away. By learning, and doing things differently, together we can all make a big difference. Let us know your action on social media and you will be entered into our prize draw. Simply share with the hashtag #PACEMyAction.

How can I donate?

You can donate here using PayPal – you do not have to have a PayPal account to use it.

What is the Manningtree District Business Chamber?

The Manningtree District Business Chamber is a local organisation which encourages growth to all sectors of trade, industry and commerce within the Manningtree area. Supporting Manningtree businesses to work together is important for the town’s growth: together we can increase awareness of the town and grow our local economy which is what keeps Manningtree alive! MDBC is the main sponsor of the Manningtree Earth Festival and is strongly in favour of sustainable development in our local area.

Thanks in advance for any money donated which will go towards covering costs for this and next year’s Earth Festival, which we hope will be even bigger and better than this one!

What does PACE do?

PACE (Practical Actions for Climate and the Environment) is a local community group exploring and carrying out activities in the wider Manningtree area to help address the climate crisis and support our environment. We want to increase understanding and take positive steps to protect our local environment. We want to help people and businesses in our community to reduce their carbon footprint.

Over the past couple of years, PACE has taken part in over 30 initiatives ranging from online events (about fast fashion, gardening to support wildlife and a hustings for local elections), litter picks, awareness-raising events and plastic free initiatives. PACE needs your help and is grateful for both donations of time and money to help run these and other great projects aimed at helping to entertain, inspire, educate and empower those looking to choose a greener path.

Who PACE can help…

Individuals, environmental groups, educationalists and companies can all benefit by working with PACE.

… and who can help us!

To make a bigger difference, we need more people. PACE is set to become a registered charity this year and needs support from volunteers and through donations. The vast array of projects that PACE has already undertaken is just the beginning and we need you to take part and to let us know what you’d like to see. The projects we engage in are usually the ones we believe will have the most impact and we need your support and information to help make these choices.
