|Farm Facilities for the Future - the winning vote!|
Last night Swansea Community Farm was alive with excitement after being presented with a cheque for £60,000 from Jubilee’s People’s Millions. The Farm went head to head with another charity in Wales on Tuesday and the result was announced live on ITV Wales news last night.
‘Getting out and about to shout about the competition offered us a chance to really get feedback from people living and working in Swansea. The positive response of people outside the local supermarket, the offer of support from Swansea centre shoppers at the weekend, the general buzz in the local community and the assistance of partner organisations has been outstanding.
Phil Budd, Education and Sustainability Manager at the Farm said: ‘We have been extremely overwhelmed by the support we have received from people across Swansea. Winning this is key to the Farm's future sustainability as the improved facilities will enable us to enhance current activities, expand our services and introduce income generating activities so we can earn our own money to re-invest for the community’s benefit.’
The moment we learnt that the Farm had won!!
