Barnwood Trust celebrates new look with tour of Gloucestershire

Gloucestershire charity Barnwood Trust will celebrate its new look and website with a tour of Gloucestershire in its VW Campervan, Barney, with the chance for locals to get involved and have fun.

Established 200 years ago, local charity Barnwood Trust is set to celebrate its brand new look and website with a tour of Gloucestershire throughout September 2017, visiting a number of locations in its T2 VW Campervan.

The charitable foundation works together with disabled people and those with mental health problems to make the community a more inclusive place, and strives to make everyone feel at home in their own county by building belonging in the county.

The revamp is an exciting time for the charity and includes vibrant new colours to reflect the optimism, energy and vitality of Barnwood, in addition to sporting circular designs to showcase the ripple effect of its connection and influence throughout Gloucestershire.

The Spot Barney Tour will see Barnwood Trust’s campervan visiting various places such as Gloucester Docks, Stratford Park, and Tewkesbury Market, as well as events such as the Newent Onion Fayre, with the hopes of meeting as many county residents as possible along the way.

What’s more, the charity is inviting people to get involved with the celebration by creating their own personalised bunting flag designs, which will be collected during the month and transformed into fabric décor for future community events.

Speaking about the bunting initiative, communications manager Jessica Waterman said: ‘We can’t wait to see what creations people come up with. Designs could include a memory, an exciting new idea or a hope for the future and they can be as colourful and creative as people like.

‘It’s going to be incredible seeing all the flags sewn together into one long string of bunting – uniting us across the county.’
