"Helping Hands" for UTASS
To help overcome the difficulties caused by the appalling weather over the past twelve months, UTASS has set up a "helping hands" project, with support from The Prince's Countryside Fund and County Durham Community Foundation, to help those in need with day to day husbandry and maintenance tasks.
If you are a suitably experienced, self employed individual who might be interested in being a "helping hand" and giving some temporary help with day to day husbandry and maintenance tasks contact Diane Spark - 01833 641010 or email@example.com
