Over the course of 2011 Waveney Greenpeace has raised £16,205 for Greenpeace UK. Over its lifetime the group has raised over £134,000.
As usual, the two fairs and the Latitude greenpeace tent were great successes along with a number of other fundraising activities including a green pancake day.
Rainbow Warrior III
In October we had the chance to see where some of the funds we’ve raised have gone as the new Rainbow Warrior III was moored in London and a group went to visit the ship. It was a fantastic day, queues of people, buzzing atmosphere, great photographs of greenpeaces history, not to mention a truly spectacular, state-of-the-art ship. This really reminded people what a truly worthy cause the group has been fundraising for over the years.
This year the summer fair was held at Henham Park, a new and exciting site in a beautiful location. Comments from people on the day suggested that we had succeeded in keeping that “Greenpeace Fair” atmosphere at Henham and it was a great day enjoyed by all.
My personal highlights were the Samba band, Swingboats (which I thought were great) and lots of fantastic and eclectic acoustic music. It was wonderful to have been part of creating such an event and I was humbled at the amount of work, energy and passion that the group has put in over the many years of creating the greenpeace fairs.
Sadly, the summer fair will not be taking place at Henham this year. It is therefore homeless once again…
There won’t be a summer fair as we know it this year because of a lack of suitable sites. However, we will be hosting a Summer fete and maintaining as much of the Summer fair’s awesome vibe as possible. We’re also working on some ideas for a variety of fundraising events during the year.
Hopefully, the Waveney Greenpeace Summer Fair will return next year. Please get in contact with Eloise if you have any suggestions of suitable site (10 acres, including parking and suitable road access).
There will also be a repeat of last year’s very successful Pancake day fundraiser on February 21st 2012. We’ll be posting details fo all out upcoming events on the website.
Waveney Greenpeace member Marion has posed the 1000 mile cycle challenge for 2012. Her goal is to get people to sponsor her to give up her car and cycle at least 1000 miles this year. She’s looking for others to join her!
More info: 1000 mile cycle challenge
We are considering other ideas, such as a summer gig, auction of promises etc…
If you have any suggestions of fundraising events you would like to see happen this year or would like to volunteer at Waveney Greenpeace events, please get in touch:

Hi and Happy New Year! I have had an idea I hope you will like. It came out of a remark my son Joe made at the beginning of this year which he did not act on for various reasons… ‘I am going to cycle 1000 miles this year’
So this year we would like to launch the 1000 mile challenge – what do you think? On Tuesday when my bike shop opens I will buy my bike computer and make sure it works properly (I will record mileage in my notebook as well.) Then I am off….
For more info on the challenge or to tell us how you got on contact us here:

It was wonderful coming past Canary Wharf and catching our first glimpse of the Rainbow Warrior. We managed to pose for some pictures outside in the fading daylight before meeting up with the Waveney gang and being welcomed by John Sauven and the captain. We felt really appreciated, especially when Issy Griffin introduced herself and said her own special thanks.
We were shown the boat by a couple of volunteers who had already done a long day, but they put up with all our questions and even sneaked us below to see the engine room and galley. Best was the excellent talk in the ‘control room’ which had a comfortably normal looking chart table and steering wheel among all the high tech controls.
We met up in the Gun with Richard Martin from HQ, over a drink and delicious canapés a la docklands like truffle risotto, for another little discussion about future Waveney fund raising possibilities Whatever will we do next!!?

The Greenpeace Fair is on! It will be taking place in a glorious new location at Henham park on Sunday 4th September from 11am to 11pm.
After our successful celebration gig last year the Greenpeace Fair, now in its 22nd year, is back in full swing.
The site, in Henham Park between Halesworth and Southwold, is an exciting space. Wide skies surrounded by mature trees and beautiful views of the lake, easily accessible from the A145 and the A12.
The Fair will feature three music stages: the big top with a range of amplified music, the acoustic stage, and our lively human dynamo stage where the sound system is powered by members of the audience riding an exercise bike! The music encompasses jazz, folk, blues, reggae, samba and much, much more.
