VAP UK-04
OTHONA COMMUNITY II
8 to 22 August 2020
Number of volunteers: 12
ENVI, MANU
PROJECT:
The Othona Community in Bradwell-on-Sea was founded in 1946. It is a residential centre for
people of different ages, nationalities and backgrounds to seek a common understanding in the
cause of peace. Othona has welcomed VAP volunteers since the early 1970's. Othona is a multi-
faith non-dogmatic Christian Community founded next to one of the oldest churches in the UK
(654AD). It fully involves non-Christians. It is an experimental community where work, play,
drama, art and study are combined. Volunteers will be fully integrated in the life of the community.

WORK:
During the summer we will be helping with the day to day running of the community, and
interacting with our guests and members, ongoing work to the grounds and gardens, ditches to be
cleared and fencing to be repaired and painted.
LEISURE:
During the volunteers’ time there, there will be themed study weeks. Details of these events can
be viewed on Othona's website http://www.othona-bradwell.org.uk/Events
Outside their work duties volunteers are encouraged to join in these activities.
ACCOMMODATION:
In tents (Please bring your own) close to the community centre. Food will be healthy and home-
made. Vegetarian diets can be catered for.
LOCATION:
The Othona Community is situated on the east coast of Essex, next to a nature reserve. It is 5 Km
from the nearest village.
TERMINAL:
London and Stansted airports and Southminster train station are the closest for arrivals and
departures.
HOSTING FEE: Volunteers will be asked to pay a fee of £90 GBP upon arrival. VAP charges this fee
as without it we would be virtually unable to organise any projects in the UK.
