Every year, each Mooncup team member is given a share of the Mooncup funds to donate to a charity of their choice. Hannah, Mooncup’s Advice Assistant, explains her choice here:
I’ve chosen to donate to Earthworks Trust (The Sustainability Centre and Natural Burial Site), an independent learning and study centre, a beacon for sustainability and an award-winning social enterprise charity in the heart of Hampshire’s South Downs, UK. This is in memory of my Nan, Margaret Read.
Nestling under a canopy of broadleaf trees and a yew grove, the natural burial site lies in a peaceful and secluded corner of The Sustainability Centre. The natural burial ground is managed to an ecologically sound system, creating a space of safety for wildlife and encouraging new life to bloom, whilst becoming a lasting tribute to those who are laid to rest there with natural and simple dignity.
The staff who work there are fantastic, and made space in a very difficult time for the opportunity to celebrate life and contemplate the cycle of both endings and the new beginnings that flower from these.
