Based in the Vale of Glamorgan, the Amelia Trust Farm is a countryside sanctuary for all to enjoy. As an independent and local charity they support disadvantaged and vulnerable teenagers who are going through a difficult time.
They are usually open to visitors throughout the year with woodland walks, animals to see, play areas, special events and a café. However, the Farm has had to close due to the current COVID-19 crisis and this has had a big impact on their ability to raise funds for their charitable work.
The staff are continuing to care for all the animals at the Farm each day making sure they are kept safe, happy and well. They are looking to raise £5,000 to help towards the cost of food, vet bills and bedding. They have just reached £2,000 and are so grateful to everyone who has donated and shared their fundraiser so far.
They are currently working as a team to follow the Welsh Government guidelines and put safety procedures in place ready for when they can re-open. They’ve received a £200 grant from Glamorgan Voluntary Services to help with PPE, hand sanitizer stations and a protective shield for their Welcome Shelter, but they still need to fundraise to help care for their animals.
They understand it is a difficult time for everyone so they give grateful and humble thanks for any donations you may be able to spare. They have set up a GoFundMe page that can be accessed on their social media pages. They also have a donate button on their website, as well their ‘Sponsor and Animal’ scheme.
They look forward to opening their gates to visitors once again, hopefully soon! In the meantime, stay safe.
