Swansea Community Farm’s ‘Big Give Christmas Campaign’ boosted by West Wales

10 October 2022

Wales’ only city farm has received a funding boost for its ‘Big Give Christmas Campaign’ West Wales region

Swansea Community Farm has secured a £1,000 donation from West Wales region.

The Farm is a community-led, award-winning charity, set in 3.5 acres of land in Swansea, and hosts a range of farm animals, allotments, wildlife areas, bee hives and café.

The organisation’s crowdfunding campaign aims to raise £10,000 to cover animal food and care costs in 2023, and takes place during the week 29 November to 6 December.

The donation comes through our Community Champions scheme, in which the company donates up to £64,000 to good causes across Great Britain, which includes up to £4,000 in Wales.

Louise Morgan, responsible for Development and Fundraising at Swansea Community Farm, said:

“We'd like to say a massive thank you to Persimmon Homes West Wales for supporting Swansea Community Farm with this fantastic donation.

“These much-needed funds will go towards our ‘Big Give Christmas Campaign’ which is directing money to our 'Funds For Fodder' project.

“We are a volunteer-led, wellbeing charity based in the heart of Swansea, with significant overheads, and we are aiming to raise £10,000 to cover our animal food and care costs in 2023.

“Persimmon Homes West Wales have been long-standing supporters of ours and we are so grateful to have their backing once again.”

Sharon Bouhali, sales director at Persimmon Homes West Wales, said:

“We’re once again delighted to support Swansea Community Farm which does so much good in the city.

“It’s a challenging period, and the Farm relies heavily on the time given by volunteers, and generosity of local companies.

“The Farm works wonders improving wellbeing, building skills, and creating a sense of belonging for many local people, alongside producing fantastic local food and caring for our environment.

“As a local housebuilder, it’s a pleasure to be supporting a community service which is making a tangible difference to people’s lives in Swansea.”
