Port Regis recently presented a cheque for £20,718 to Margi Jervoise from Farms for City Children.
Farms for City Children was their chosen school charity last academic year and the school said they were delighted to be able to support such an inspirational cause.
“We were thrilled to hear that this is the largest donation that the charity has received from any school.”
Farms for City Children was founded by the author Michael Morpurgo and his wife Clare in 1976 and 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. They now have three working farms, which welcome around 3,200 children and 400 teachers a year.
We say well done Port Regis!
