Opportunities to support the Farm Project CIC,
at Abbey Home Farm
The Farm Project CIC (not-for- profit Community Interest Company) has hosted residential visits for over 240 young people in 2018. Some visits have been fully funded by the school/organisation, some funded by the farm shop, businesses and private donors.
Next year we hope to welcome more young people to the farm. However due to ever shrinking budgets, schools are finding it harder to fund residential trips. With your support we can subsidise the true cost of the visit, making it accessible to those that need it the most.
The majority of young people visiting here are from predominantly urban and disadvantaged backgrounds. Most have never been to a farm, ran through a wood or pulled a carrot from the ground. We believe that all children and young people should have this experience.
A week long visit for 10 young people (and 3 staff) costs £3750.
To match fund a week long visit it is £1875.
An individual place for a young person for a week is £375.
All donations however small or large are greatly appreciated.
