Whirlow Hall Farm Win National Accolade

10th October 2017

Local charity, and SCC member, Whirlow Hall Farm Trust has been awarded the coveted 2017 Bayer/FACE Access award - a national accolade for organisations that make farming and the countryside accessible to disadvantaged youngsters.

Competition was fierce this year and so it is terrific that a Sheffield charity has got the honours. The judges recognised the fantastic work that Whirlow Hall Farm Trust does with children who face a variety of challenges - behavioural, emotional, learning, social - with the aim of helping them to maximise their potential. The Trust's work with children who have been excluded from mainstream education was also seen as hugely significant - using the farm as a means to get those children back on track so that they can enjoy their childhood and make a positive contribution to the region, rather than become a problem to themselves, their families and their communities. The award is recognition that the Trust lives up to its maxim - 'Where some see a problem, we see potential'. If your team would like to be part of this rewarding work then contact Whirlow Hall Farm Trust at admin@whirlowhallfarm.org For more information, please visit: http://www.whirlowhallfarm.org/
