Our Charity for 2018
2018 sees Farms for City Children as our charity of the year. It gives us great pleasure to raise money for this amazing charity.
Farms for City Children was founded by children’s author Michael Morpurgo and his wife Claire in 1976 when they brought Nethercott House, Iddesleigh in the heart of rural Devon. The charity offers urban children from all over the country a unique opportunity to live and work together for a week on a real farm in the heart of the countryside. It is an intense, ‘learning through doing’ experience of a different life – for children who may not know where their food comes from and have limited opportunities to explore the outside world. The charity now have three working farms, where they welcome around 3,200 children and 400 teachers a year.
Help us to raise money for the charity. We would really appreciate contributions to their important work. If you’d like to donate, please visit justgiving.com/helpfulholidays where you can donate online.
