Delivering life skills through sport in Croydon
LandAid works to improve the lives of children and young people in the UK who experience disadvantage due to their economic or social circumstances.
As a charitable foundation supported by the property industry, LandAid finds ways to apply the generosity and expertise of the industry to this cause.
Jamie’s Farm provides a caring and engaging environment on a working farm, taking kids from some of London’s toughest schools to a rural setting where they receive careful support and mentoring.
LandAid has awarded a grant of £110,000, and St James’s Place Foundation a further £45,000 - a total of £155,000 to jointly fund renovation work at the 18th century house, to create the central ‘home’ at the new farm.
The work includes renovations to create seven bedrooms, a kitchen to accommodate 50 people, a boot room and a central dining room space – the heart of the home.
