Farms for City Children is our charity for 2015

We're delighted to announce that Farms for City Children is our charity for 2015. The charity, founded by children’s author Michael Morpurgo and his wife Clare at Nethercott Farm in Devon in 1976, was also our charity in 2012.

The charity’s aim is to enrich the lives of children from urban areas, who may not know where their food comes from and have limited opportunities to get up close to animals, by giving them the chance to spend a week living and working on a real farm in the heart of the countryside.

We are looking forward to working with them again and hopefully helping lots of deserving children to spend some time on one of the farms. The charity has three working farms which welcome around 3,000 children and 400 teachers each year. Over 70,000 children have benefited to date.

We hope you'll help us spread the word about this wonderful charity and the excellent work it does. We'll keep you updated on news from the farms and our fundraising efforts during 2015.

If you’d like to make a donation, visit at any time or you can also make a contribution when you book a holiday through Helpful Holidays.
