We run occasional workshops throughout the year to make ethical crafts, repair vintage tools and to bring people together. The following workshops are happening this year.

Tool Repair Workshop(s):

DIY fundraising?

You might like to 'DIY' (Do It Yourself) when it comes to fundraising for The Papillon Project? Below are some amazing examples:

Debbie's South West Path 630 mile charity walk (currently happening!)

Debbie Palmer, one of the Trustees of The Papillon Project is walking 630 miles along the South West Coast Path and sleeping in a tent along the way! It's an extraordinary undertaking and we wish Debbie all the very best! If you would like to sponsor Debbie you can do so via her JustGiving page (please click here). All donations that are kindly made go to support our charitable work!

Charity walk

This could be an individual or a group event to help raise funds for the charity. In July/August of 2021, charity founder, Matt Willer, walked the entire length of The Peddars Way (46 miles) from Thetford to Holme-next-the-Sea in two days and all totally barefoot! He raised over £10,000 for the charity. Please click here to read more.
