With the farm's income generated by activities, such as Experience Days, Admissions and Mobile Farms to schools and residential care homes, our income dried up overnight with the national lock down. We now face an uncertain year ahead and we are not eligible for any of the government grants which has been announced so far and the end of the lockdown is not imminent.
We are a community interest company and do not receive any funding from local authorities.
Working very closely with Pupil Referral Units (PRUs), we work with many students on the edge of criminality and encourage them to achieve life skills that will help them lead a more law-abiding life.
We provide volunteering opportunities and support to local communities, including vulnerable people, older people, people experiencing anxiety and depression, isolated, people with disabilities, and people with learning difficulties.
When the immediate crisis abates, with the help of our 60+ animals, our aim is to improve the physical and mental wellbeing of residents, helping them with potential issues caused by this situation. Anxiety, depression, isolation, fear, hunger, and poverty have become common place for many, and we want to be able to help post covid-19 to tackle these issues and alleviate suffering.
With your Support
We can only do this with your help. We need to raise £2000 a month to pay for food, bedding , medicines and veterinary care for the animals. The animals are our priority and their welfare is imperative.
Please help support Nunny’s Farm with a donation during this time, so we may care for the animals and deliver our vital service to the local communities after Covid-19.
