Appeal launched for Lakeside Care Farm near Swindon which featured on Countryfile this weekend

By Jamie Hill - 21 January 2019


Wiltshire Wildlife Trust has launched an appeal to support the work of Lakeside Care Farm near Swindon, which was featured in this week’s BBC Countryfile programme.

Matt Baker and the Countryfile team met the students and staff at Lakeside Care Farm on the Trust’s Lower More nature reserve, to learn about the important work being done to improve children’s lives through bonding with ‘therapy animals’.

Viewers heard some of the student’s emotional stories about what the Care Farm means to them, and how working with the staff and therapy animals there has transformed their lives for the better.

In order to help expand the Care Farm and reach more young people, the Trust urgently needs to raise funds to rescue more animals for the therapy animal programme. The public’s help is needed to build a shelter and provide food for a small group of therapy goats that will be vital to this work. You can donate this appeal at

By expanding the Care Farm the Trust will be able to reach more young people and change their lives for the better – so please help them raise the funds they need.
