Social Action Project – This is a new project for Live! that encourages our children, young people and adults to think about their communities and how they can go about improving them.  Currently we have projects that are raising funds and resources for the Arc Angel animal rescue – there will be sponsored bike rides and sport activities taking place. Later on in the year there will be a project to support the homeless community.  These two groups were chosen by our groups as needing support through a voting process, this way everything is fair and democratic – there will be future opportunities for our groups to pick other causes they see as worthy. Currently closed due to Covid.
