Summer fun at Amelia Trust Farm was a big success this year, despite the roadworks on the five mile lane. “The roadworks on the Five Mile Lane have had an impact on our fundraising when there have been closures but thankfully visitors were able to reach us throughout the school holidays,” commented Karen Turnbull, Director.
The registered charity welcomed over 12,000 visitors to their Care Farm during July and August.
Their family fundraising events were a huge hit, with even more new faces on the Farm during the holidays. They had great visitor feedback and some amazing recommendations along the way.
Their new super hero day was a huge hit with junior super heroes in training, their ‘be a farmer for a day’ sessions were a sell out and their new educational super hero trail was big hit with both the children and the adults!
They had a great turn out for their dog show on their dog walkers as well as enjoying the woodland walks with their four legged friends. Large numbers of grandparents and grandchildren visited to celebrate grandparents day, as the Farm has long history with generations of families enjoying the countryside sanctuary and the Farm’s therapeutic qualities.
Becca Palmer, marketing manager said “We would like to say a big thank you to everyone who joined us and supported the Farm this summer, your contributions are vital in helping us continue the critical work we do with vulnerable young people in south wales and in keeping the Farm open to the public. We are now planning October Half Term Fun, so keep your eyes peeled for more information coming soon on our website and on social media.”
