VOLUNTEERS from The Princes Trust, based at the Heart of Worcestershire College, volunteered at Dodford Children’s Holiday Farm helping with a range of projects.

They included creating a ‘pick your own fruit’ area, building wigwams and making see-saws and tunnels for the rabbits at the venue which gives disadvantaged inner-city children a taste of the countryside.

A total of 20 volunteers, aged between 16 and 25, spent a fortnight at the venue.

One of them said: “We found this project to be challenging and an enjoyable experience.

“We hope the young people who use the farm will get good use out of what we have done for years to come.”

Kelly Broadfield, the resident warden at the farm, said they were extremely grateful for the work the volunteers did.

“We rely largely on donations and income from school visits and have only three members of staff so we value work from volunteers very highly.

“We’d love to hear from any other organisations or companies that would be interested in helping out at the farm.”
