11,000 thanks from Elm Tree Farm

A FARM providing work for people with learning disabilities has been helped back on its feet by the community after a devastating burglary.

 

Individual donors, groups and businesses have given more than £11,000 to Elm Tree Farm in Stapleton, which was ransacked in December.

 

The social enterprise has also been given power tools and other equipment to replace some of what was lost.

 

Brandon Trust, which runs the farm, has said thank you to everyone who has helped – but the charity still urgently needs help to replace the Transit van it used to take its produce to shops, which the burglars drove off in.
