Corporate and Business Support

We want to say an extra special thank you to the following businesses who have nominated us as their Charity Partner and Charity of the Year:

Bristol Beer Factory - who sponsor our fundraising events by donating delicious tasting beer. This means that all the income we raise can then support our community services.

Local Businesses - such as Better Food Shop, Fierce and Noble, Wiper and True, the Farm Pub, Dawkins Brewery, Ashley Down Brewery, Napolitia and more. These brilliant businesses often donate stock, raffle prizes or give us a discount to ensure that we can maximise our profits to support our events. Thank you so much.

In kind support

Of course, it is not only money that we need to operate. We also aided by several individuals and businesses in the local community through donations and time. They include:

Greenhouse Stores, who have offered us a mighty fine reduction on our new greenhouse which will be used by our Supported Training Team to sell on their fruit and veg seedlings. Thanks Greenhouse Stores – you are kind people!

The Green Play Project – who are always there when we need help with a wooden structure, a playful idea or site beautification. Oh, and of course, they built our fantastic green playground.

If you would like to support the Farm’s work, please ask for details about becoming a Love Farm Member.
