Llantwit's Rosedew Farm Raises Over £2,700 For Charity With Sunflowers


Llantwit Major's, Rosedew Farm, raised an impressive £2736.28 for charity over the summer, from the donations of visitors to their Sunflower Walk.

The farm, who planted the flowers in what they called a "lockdown experiment", split the funds raised between Mind in The Vale and Ysgol Gymraeg Dewi Sant.

Donations were made via an "honesty box" placed at the entrance of the field, with no minimum donation requirement for visitation established, and the farm encouraging visitors to donate whatever they wished.

Mind in the Vale took to their Twitter account to thank Rosedew Farm for their portion of the money, saying:

"Huge thanks/Diolch to @FarmRosedew for the very generous donation of £1368.14.The Farm opened up the sunflower field for the first time this year for all to enjoy splitting the proceeds between @Mindinthevaleo1 & local school @YDewiSant. The sunflowers were beautiful!"


With the farm's little "lockdown experiment" going so well, they have advised their followers to watch for what they now have planned for next year, saying in a post on their Facebook account:

"We’re pleased to announce that we raised a staggering £2736.28 for Mind in the Vale and Ysgol Gymraeg Dewi Sant. Thanks to all of your generosity when visiting our sunflowers at Rosedew Farm. Dafi planted them as a lockdown experiment and look what happened, watch this space for what we have planned for next year and we hope to continue raising money for some great local causes!"
