How Red Nose Day gives kids the field-good factor
MEET Toby, a teacher-turned-farmer who helps disadvantaged kids find pastures new.
The 37-year-old left his school in London to help run Jamie’s Farm, a project using farming to re-engage vulnerable children at risk of unlawful behaviour.
One of Red Nose Day’s case studies, Toby told GP TV that the farm ‘gives the children a sense of achievement’.
He added: ‘Many haven’t been out of the city they live in, so cutting wood, for example, is a whole new experience.’
