Lynn has a financial goal of raising £200,000 at present she has raised £44,978 towards that goal via her CROWDFUND appeal. (27/8/17).

Here at The Tartan Carrot we think this is a wonderful vision and wanted to try and help her raise more money towards this goal. So we have decided to arrange this Event in Glasgow which will allow everyone in Scotland the chance to participate in some way to help raise funds.
This 2nd Event Newsletter will give you a basic outline of how this day will run and how you can participate. We will continue to update this Newsletter and publish it every week so you can see how the event is developing.

We will also continue to update yoga/wellbeing and cooking class information over the coming weeks, the organised classes will be FREE to attend once you have booked your entry ticket by kindly donating £10 to the Lotus Animal Sanctuary (see “Buy Ticket” links at the top and bottom of this Newsletter).
Class places will be limited in cooking classes and in yoga/wellbeing classes so please remember to book a place by sending us an email to info@thetartancarrot.co.uk with details. Many classes are available to book now.
