Covid-19 has had a devastating effect on the work carried out by many of our charity partners. Unfortunately, as the first nationwide lockdown began, the Children’s Adventure Farm had to cancel all of their residential programmes.
However, the determination of their team and the continued support from their many volunteers meant that they were able to develop a new programme. A programme that enabled three families to safely visit the farm at one time while also adhering to the new social distancing regulations.
For these children, a visit to CAFT provides a much-needed opportunity to have fun, laughter and to simply enjoy being children. The new programme allows them to explore the woodland, attend the forest school, make use of the incredible playpark and even visit some of their favourite animals. Since the end of May, 690 families have visited Children’s Adventure Farm, a much needed support system during these isolating times.
One mother had this to say: “It has to be one of the most relaxing trips out we’ve had in a long long time. He loved doing his own thing in each zone and it was great to see him having so much fun and the freedom to run around. Thank you for such an amazing day, I haven’t seen him smile like he did for a while now and we all had an amazing time.”
