High Sheriff of Shropshire Supports Longlands Social Farm

The High Sheriff of Shropshire, Dean Harries has helped our school Social Farm receive some funding. This is fantastic news that will allow continued growth of our outdoor learning space and give us the opportunity to run some workshops. 

Longlands Primary School said; “We are extremely grateful of the support Dean has shown us. Not just with our Social Farm but also with an exciting sporting programme currently being developed. Without her support we would not be able to offer our pupils these workshops.” 

Dean Harris, High Sheriff of Shropshire, said; “When the team at Longlands Primary School approached me to help them find funding for their mental health and wellbeing workshops, I was thrilled to be able to secure £800 from AICO, who have dedicated their CSR programme to helping my causes during my shrieval year, and a further £200 from NFU Mutual. Huge thanks to both organisations for enabling this project to go ahead.

“Childhood deprivation is a core focus of my year as High Sheriff – and it’s become even more important due to the upheaval and stress felt by all children, but particularly those classed as vulnerable, during the pandemic and subsequent lockdown.

“As an animal-lover myself, I know the therapeutic effects pets can have, and so I wholeheartedly support the Social Farm and the mental health workshops being run by Longlands staff.” 

We were delighted to welcome the High Sheriff of Shropshire and Aico Ltd to our Social Farm recently. The feedback received gave our children and adults a huge boost. A big thank you to the Shropshire Star for reporting on this – you can read their article by clicking here.
