DJ, one of our volunteers, delivers orders by bicycle. We hope that with the increase in sales, and more birds before long we can provide a small job for an ex-offender. Another success is Tom Howdle, 15, who came to Rhubarb Farm on placement from school where his attendance and behaviour had been problematic.
After being once a week at Rhubarb Farm for 6 months, Tom has now got onto a bricklaying course, and as a result of his good reference from Rhubarb Farm, has also got an apprenticeship. This is the essenceof our work – giving people a sense of purpose, work experience and discipline and a motivation to improve their lives. Well done Tom!
