Care farm secures community cash

A farm in Norfolk has received a £1,000 funding boost from Persimmon Anglia.

Clinks Care Farm is a social enterprise caring for both the land and local people, allowing vulnerable individuals to be active in a naturally therapeutic environment.

As part of the Community Champions scheme, Clinks Care Farm has been awarded £1,000 to help fund equipment for the farm.

Michelle Baker, director in charge at Persimmon Anglia, said: “Covid-19 has impacted a lot of people in many ways, so we are so pleased to be able to support an organisation which is focused on improving the growth of those who have been adversely affected.”

The farm aims to provide direct help for those who need extra support in re-joining society or gaining motivation post Covid-19.

Linda Offord, who applied for the funding, added: “We are over the moon with the generous donation from Persimmon. With more equipment for activities, even more people will be able to get involved.

“We want to be a safe place for people to come - a place where people can undertake tasks such as flower cutting, helping with animals, and harvesting fruit. These tasks will hopefully increase self-confidence and skill levels before moving back into employment and we are so grateful of the donation for allowing us to do this.”

Under the Community Champions programme, the company invites funding applications of up to £1,000, from community-based good causes and charities. Each month, two applications from each region are chosen.
