Group Volunteering

We can offer a wide range of activities suited to the abilities and interests of your colleagues. You can get your hands dirty with some woodland conservation, helping to maintain our pathways and trails, or help us with painting and a DIY project in the workshops, do some gardening and grass cutting or meet some of our animals and help us clean out some of our their housing and feed them, to name but a few.

Typically our days take place from 9.30 am – 3:30 pm, but we can be flexible according to your team’s needs. 

After morning refreshments we usually kick off the day with a introduction to the work we do as a charity supporting vulnerable and disadvantaged young people and a brief tour of the Farm. We then take a look at the job/s in hand for the day ahead and gather the appropriate tools. Then it’s a quick toolbox talk to highlight health and safety practices when tackling the job/s in hand and then it is full steam ahead.

Picture of people cutting a hedgeWe can provide all necessary tools and materials for the day, however, we welcome any support from the groups in terms of tool replenishment or materials provision.  Many of our past groups have engaged in fundraising activities prior to spending the day volunteering at the Farm which we are always very grateful for! Let us know if this is something your group could support us with.

Your day can be adapted to include any training/meetings you want to include with the exclusive use of a room all day.

We encourage your group to take regular breaks throughout the day and to take some time out to explore the Farm and some of the woodland trails.

As part of your package we can provide refreshments for morning and afternoon breaks and a buffet lunch to suit all diets. 

You will have a designated member of the Farm team to act as your point of contact on the day and ensure you are well looked after.

The Corporate Away Day package is £35 per person.

Corporate Giving

There are many ways in companies and organisations can support the work we do with vulnerable and disadvantaged young people. 

Projects

Construction of Donkey SanctuaryCompanies can choose to undertake a specific project to help us develop our infrastructure.  Undertaking a project normally involves the company donating everything needed to complete the project including materials and people power.  A recent example of this was the support we received from local construction company Carillion.  Carillion donated all the materials and people power to build our new donkey sanctuary.  The new sanctuary has given much needed new accommodation to our two donkeys, Merlin and Arthur and has enabled us to give homes to two additional donkeys, Madoc and Cocoa.  Donkeys are highly intelligent animals and they help us to deliver our therapeutic learning programme to our young people.

Equipment and materialsLloyds Bank presenting equipment

Our Wish List provides companies and organisations with the opportunity to donate equipment to the Amelia Trust Farm. The wish list contains tools and equipment that will be used around the Farm. 

Vets for pets treating a catSpecialist support

Often companies are able to help us with specialist support.  Examples of specialist support we have benefited from includes veterinary care, pest control and carpet cleaning.

Adopt us as your charity of the year

Many companies are bombarded with requests for support from a range of charities and it is often difficult to know which one to choose. That is why some companies decide to adopt one local charity for a year and focus their efforts on supporting that charity. How about adopting the Amelia Trust Farm as your local charity for a year?
