The group meet every Wednesday and walk together along a nature trail that they choose within Worcestershire, enjoying the natural scenery and each other’s company. Walks usually span from between 3 miles and 5 miles, with humans and pooches taking on the trails, to usually end at a local pub for some well-earned food and a good chat!
Each time they meet, a voluntary £1 can be put into a central fund which they then donate to a chosen charity. Since the group began in 2000 they have raised an incredible £10,500 for their chosen charities!
The money donated to the Care Farm is going to be put towards a new saddle for Scooby, one of our therapy ponies. The students enjoy riding at the farm, usually getting a 20-minute session each time they visit (weather permitting).
