We give children a week on working farms to grow courage, compassion and curiosity


Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

Julie and I are going to be trekking on sections of the Great Wall from 22nd October.....aiming to raise money to buy some fabulous new resources for our visiting children! We expect to be covering about 90 miles over 9 days, climbing steep steps, clambering over fallen masonry and scrambling down scrubby hills between different parts of the wall. We really hope our knees can stand it!!! And then there's the vertigo.....!

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity. So it’s the most efficient way to donate – saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

We want to raise enough money to enable as many children as possible to spend a week of 'muck and magic' on our farms at Nethercott in Devon. This week will change their lives! I see the effects  and  know how important it is to get children outdoors and purposefully working together. Help us to make a difference.

About the charity

Founded in 1976 by children’s author Michael Morpurgo and his wife Clare, our three farms welcome 3000 children and young people from underserved communities each year, helping them to step outside of their daily lives, learn new skills, grow in confidence and be braver, stronger and more resilient.
