The award-winning baby brand has raised over £40,000 for a sunshine coach which has been presented to Willaston Community Farm on The Wirral.
The company was joined by comedian Stan Boardman, who has helped raise funds for over 200 coaches for underprivileged children up and down the country to date through his charity work for Variety and Variety Golf.
Joie is one of the major sponsors of Variety Golf and along with Stan, has worked hard to raise funds, with the last event making over £40,000, funding another Sunshine coach.
Managing director of Joie, David Welsh, commented: “We are delighted to be able to support Variety Golf and present this minibus to Willaston Community Farm, we hope it will help Willaston to go on providing the excellent support it give to the community through its education and training courses.”
Willaston Community Farm is a CIC dedicated to the advancement of education and improvement of wellbeing for all age groups. The company works with schools, colleges and job centres to promote local businesses and with the DWP to deliver training courses. The organisation also works with OLLY, the children’s charity to provide mental health activities for children and adults with additional needs.
Paul Jackson, ceo, added: “The future is looking bright at the farm and we intend to expand the sunshine coach to all our services and the youths of our surrounding community, we are so grateful for all the hard work and support from Stan and David Welsh of Joie, and we are thrilled that the local community and Hassan Hijazi and Lisa Breakspear of Cheshire West and Chester Council, along with Birkenhead MP Mick Whitely could join us for the presentation and the most memorable day on the farm.”
