Care home residents continue their support for community farm

Residents from Milford House Care Home in Salisbury recently visited River Bourne Community Farm in Laverstock to hand over a cheque for £367.

The residents have made the farm their chosen charity for 2023 and so far this year have raised a grand total of £607, with many more fundraising events to come.

As the cheque was handed over to Sara-Jane Hancock, education and marketing manager, accompanied by her two lovely rescue dogs, Gemma Hicks, general manager at Milford House, said: “Residents love visiting the farm regularly and so to be raising money for all the fantastic work that they do seemed perfect.

“This latest donation was from our recent ‘Big Coronation Cream Tea Party & Fete’ and we felt it supported the King’s wish for more people to get involved in their local communities.

“We may not be able to volunteer on the farm but raising money for them is the next best thing. Our residents are always made to feel so welcome when they visit and we are so lucky to have the farm right on our doorstep.”

One of the residents commented: “I love going to the farm and seeing the animals and all the people who come to visit them and get such pleasure from it. The coffee and cakes are good too.”
