The Rhubarb Farm Crowdfunding Appeal
The Rhubarb Farm minibus crowdfunding appeal has been launched and we invite you to be part of our campaign to raise £11,000 to buy and run our very own “Veggie Bus”, as our volunteers have nicknamed it.
We really need the minibus so we can take our volunteers, some of whom have multiple and complex needs, to and from their homes, often in rural areas.
Without dedicated transport many of our volunteers will not be able to get to work at the Farm or take part in courses, which make such a difference to their lives.
Please visit our appeal page at www.chuffed.org/project/RF to see the video our volunteers have made asking for your support that will allow us to help even more people live full and happy lives.
As we don't believe in asking for something for nothing, we have come up with a list of great rewards that you could get for making a donation. There really is something for everyone, from a hand- painted Ladybird, to a day on the Farm for you and some friends, through to having your company's logo on the side of the minibus as a corporate sponsor.
We really hope you will be able to offer some support, no matter how small as it will all help us to reach our target. We'll be chuffed with every donation!
