Animal Welfare and Environmental Conservation Charity. Green Paw Project is a charity dedicated to the welfare of animals, environmental conservation, rewilding of lands, planting trees, carbon sequestration, human reconnection to the natural world, and the cleaning of plastic and waste that litters our planet.
The vision of Green Paw Project is to keep raising funds to buy small pieces of agricultural land in North Wales. Each piece of land will be developed into the most ecologically suited way for environmental conservation and for local wildlife. We envisage buying several plots of agricultural land from 5 acres to 50 acres to focus on:
- Planting trees for carbon balancing / sequestration
- Generating plots for growing organic food
- Creating spaces likes ponds and flower gardens for wildlife to thrive such as amphibians, bees, butterflies, birds and mammals
- Building education spaces for children and adults through our Human Reconnection to the Natural World program
We are ready to buy the first plot of land of up to 5 acres in 2021 with the funds raised over the last few years, and also the funds that will be raised from Grand Week in Wales 2022. These pieces of land will be protected by law and turned into a Green Paw Project Park. The parks and education spaces will be accessible to the Green Paw Projects members. A new website will be launched in Spring 2022.

Our service to the NHS is provided 100% of charge and is funded entirely by public donations and sponsorship. We are often referred to as blood bikes but do much more, transporting virtually anything medical that can be carried on a motorcycle. We cover the whole of Wales, providing services to all NHS Trusts in Wales.
Volunteering for Blood Bikes Wales is a worthwhile cause, saving the NHS in Wales hundreds of thousands of pounds every year that can be released for patient care.
The Wrexham group was formed in 2015 and currently has around 95 members. We run 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
Any money raised will go into our service in either equipment, fuel, or insurance, allowing us to carry on our work 100% free of charge for the NHS.

The Ahmadiyya Muslim Women’s Association (AMWA), also known as Lajna Ima’illah (maid servants of Allah), is the women’s auxiliary organisation of the worldwide Ahmadiyya Muslim Community. It was established in 1922 by the second successor to the Promised Messiah (peace be on him). Our main goal is to promote religious and secular education to empower women and support those lacking in these areas. We actively spread peace, equality and diversity by firmly believing in our motto “Love for All, Hatred for None”. AMWA is registered as a charity with more than 11,000 members in the UK. To commemorate 100 Years since our establishment, we have pledged to plant 100,000 trees across the UK. The AMWA is also supporting the construction of a maternity hospital in Sierra Leone. We also host annual National Women’s Peace Symposiums. This flagship event is attended by ladies from across the UK including parliamentarians, diplomats, faith and civic leaders as well as representatives from charities and faith communities to promote a deeper understanding of Islam and other faiths and seeks to inspire a concerted effort for lasting peace.
