Tom Jones has been volunteering for the Island Project for roughly 8 months. He has been compelled to spread his message about just how important The Island Project Farming & Education Centre is for him and the wider community.

Tom has a wealth of knowledge having studied Zoo Biology and is always keen to share his knowledge as well as listen to other people’s stories. Tom regularly volunteers at the weekend to help feed and clean the animals; his brawns, as well as his brains, are appreciated at these times.

Tom has made flyers and information sheets about The Island Project’s animals and for community events that, unfortunately, had to cancel due to COVID 19. Sadly, our volunteers have also had to stop coming but this hasn’t stopped Tom from doing his best to fundraise for The Island. He’s shaved his head and recorded this video to share the benefits that the farm has for him and for the young people who come to the project and for our local community as a whole.  

We hope you watch the video with the same joy as The Island Project team has. Thank you to our very own Island Warrior, our hero Tom!

“Really, the ugly duckling is the perfect example of what The Island Project is attempting to achieve. It’s taking people who everyone has perceptions about and preconceived ideas about and trying to show them that they can be more than what people perceive them to be”

– Thomas Jones, Island Warrior.
