Suffolk care farmers are calling on the public to support their bid to secure funding to offer 13 vulnerable people a 12 week farm therapy course.
Pathways Care Farm in Lowestoft is competing for grants from the Aviva Community Fund and is hoping to secure £9,360 to help people suffering from a range of mental health conditions by gaining as many public votes as possible.
“We are appealing directly to the people of Suffolk to help us to help some of the most vulnerable people in our community,” said care farm boss Geoff Stevens
Over three years volunteers transformed a derelict farm and launched the charity in 2016. It now works with more than 30 people a week with conditions that range from learning difficulties and dementia to depression and anxiety. To vote, visit www.community-fund.aviva.co.uk.
