Farm project works with Refugee Council
5:00pm Monday 1st October 2012 in News
Magdalen Farm at Winsham worked with the Refugee Council to let a dozen trafficked teenage girls from London see life in the country.
Many girls have children of their own, so Winsham Pre-School also took part in the project.
Nicky Wills of Winsham Pre-school acted as a volunteer to look after toddlers for a few hours each day, so the mothers could enjoy the same opportunities as their peers.
The Magdalen Environmental Trust hosts schools, charities and special interest groups, using its 132-acre organic farm to help visitors learn about environmental issues, new skills or help them feel better about themselves.
