Soon after posting the good news item about fruit tree pruning, I received the following email from the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust. So depressing! Vandals stole and destroyed our minibus – and without it our ground-breaking educational project grinds to a halt. Insurance only part-covers replacing it and we are still £2600 short. Can you help? […]

The headline may sound dramatic but it is both technically and medically accurate. My name is Dave Pearson and I have rheumatoid arthritis, it is a long-term condition that causes pain, swelling and stiffness in the joints.
