A route-planning app that finds the safest route from A to B thanks to users' ratings of how safe they felt on each road. Users can rate roads for how safe they felt and at what time. Out of five for how safe they felt, box for written explanation, and notes for council – if they felt unsafe, why? Like google maps, the app will find a route for you but you can choose for it to be based on how safe people felt on it. People have to sign up through a facebook, insta or twitter account which is checked to be a real account.
FoodCycle South West
WE SERVE COMMUNITY MEALS ACROSS THE COUNTRY We support people who are hungry and lonely by serving free tasty lunches and dinners every single day in towns and cities across the country. Many of our guests struggle to afford the basics to eat and many will eat alone without company or conversation. Our growing number of incredible volunteers across the country serve over 1,400 people a week using surplus food (cooked in spare kitchen space). We currently have three projects in the South West - Bristol, Bath and Exeter. If you live in one of these areas, hate the idea of food going to waste and would like a fun way to make a difference to the community, we would like to hear from you.

Combating child malnutrition in Nepal
Screening and treating Nepal's high levels of children suffering with malnutrition so that no child need die because of the issues it can cause. We are also educating caregivers on how to feed their children a nutritionally balanced diet and how to follow hygiene guidelines (e.g. washing hands) to stop it in its tracks. Examples of this is that we train caregivers to feed their new born babies breast milk as opposed to tea and make them aware of the benefits of washing hands and dishes so that their children do not face bouts of dysentery. This can lead to the child picking up infections which they then can sadly die from.
