There is no denying that 2020 has been a difficult year but if you, like us, are determined to find the silver lining in every cloud, there have been some positives along the way too.
We were obliged to close the Care Farm for three months from March to June 2020 which felt very uncomfortable. We missed seeing of all our regulars, and although we kept in touch by phoning, messaging, emailing and good old pigeon post, we were aware this was a poor substitute for our usual input. On the bright side it really brought home to us how much being part of the Care Farm community means to people and we were so happy when we were able to welcome folk back in June.
On October 29th Isobel and Jo joined Pershore Rotary Club to walk the 1083 miles from Lands End to John O’Groats. We have been incredibly inspired and energised by the support of Pershore Rotary club this year. We cannot overstate how grateful we are to them for organising and leading our recently completed 1083 mile sponsored walk which has, so far, raised over £2,200 towards our kitchen renovation project.
The walk to John O’Groats may be over but we still have a way to go to turn our dream of a fit-for-purpose kitchen into a reality. With the ongoing support on offer from Pershore Rotary Club, and thanks to all of you amazing individuals who have kindly donated already, it really does feel that together we will achieve our goal.
On 31st December we arrived in John O’Groats in time to see the new year in. So please join us now by raising your glass to toast “Pershore Rotary Club and all those who have given their support to Wick Care Farm”. THANK YOU!
