Farm appeal to barn appeal
For several years now, Little John’s House staff have been searching the local area to find the perfect piece of land for our proposed farm project. Unfortunately, a delightful 3.7 acres of orchard/farm land, which we had reserved, has since been lost. Despite best efforts, no further piece of land has been found, but our mission to further enrich the lives of our young adults and provide a loving home for more children with special needs continues.
With this mission at the center, we would now like to inform you of our revised project, which is to knock down the existing barn at Little John’s House and rebuild a purpose built centre in its place. We have therefore launched our ‘Barn Appeal’. All funds previously raised to purchase the land and build the farm will be transferred to this new barn appeal.
We are currently working hard to design the new building, which will provide accommodation for our young adults and staff, as well as house a day care centre for children with special needs in the local area. The existing house will then be converted into volunteer accommodation for the annual Summer School.
We will keep you posted on progress!
