Hanson has donated 100 m3 of specialist concrete to support Jamie’s Farm in making essential improvements at its farm in Bath, UK.
The charity helps disadvantaged young people, predominantly aged 11 – 16, to thrive through a unique residential programme built around ‘Farming, Family, Therapy, and Legacy’ at its sites in Bath, Hereford, Monmouth, and Lewes.
Bespoke concrete from the company’s Farm Range, which is specifically formulated for agricultural applications, was supplied to relay an uneven farmyard to create safer space by removing potholes and other trip hazards. It also provided increased hardstanding for a larger outdoor feeding space for the farm’s animals, which play an important role in the young peoples’ programme of activities.
“The donation forms part of our ongoing commitment to Jamie’s Farm and the real reward is seeing the difference it will make to the charity and the work it does to enhance the lives and wellbeing of young people,” said James Moorhouse, Hanson UK Regional Manager.
“Hanson has been generous in helping us transform our farms in Bath and Hereford from muddy yards to accessible, safe spaces,” said Jamie Feilden, Founder of Jamie’s Farm. “This has allowed the young people we support to get involved in real farming jobs and gain a sense of achievement from their hard work. Without the support of companies like Hanson, we simply cannot achieve the outcomes for disadvantaged young people at this crucial stage in their lives.”
