Posted on the Rhubarb Farm Facebook page in March 2019 by a visitor to the Farm: ”A fabulous inclusive environment of first class support, development, well being and inspiration”
Rob Mayo, President of the East Midlands Chamber came to Rhubarb Farm for the Volunteer Celebration on 24th July 2018, to present all our volunteers with their certificates for the work and training they have done over the last year. He also met Miss Tina, one of our volunteers who is a Drag Queen and opened the Community Cafe on the night. He wrote:
"I really did enjoy the evening and it was great fun meeting Miss Tina – what a personality!
Please pass on my thanks to everyone for making me feel so welcome and for the very kind hospitality. Rhubarb Farm is a wonderful organisation which clearly makes a real difference to so many people's lives.
Well done to all!
