Wood Green working with dog friendly Woodfarm Barns

Doing our bit for charity

Charity Logos

At Woodfarm Barns we are proud to be doing our little bit for three great causes. This is a small cottage (sorry!) industry but we are fortunate enough to be in a position to use the business and some personal time to be able to do some good for;

* The Willow Foundation via ‘Leestock Festival’

This came about in 2013 when I was asked to perform at Leestock Festival in Long Melford, Suffolk. I’m a singer/songwriter in my spare time (hah!) and became involved as a sponsor through the business too as I loved what they were doing. This continued in 2014 as we were again key sponsors, financing and producing the festival programme, as well as performing again that year with my band Elephant in the Room.

* Wood Green, The Animals Charity

This kinda happened by accident when Dawn & Paul, some of our most loyal guests suggested we may wish to become an ‘affiliate partner’ as Dawn works there. I have obviously been familiar with the amazing work that Wood Green do for many years. We pride ourselves in providing high-quality pet-friendly accommodation and as the pet market is a huge part of what we do it seemed like a great idea.

* Suffolk Family Carers

Again this came about through my music as a fellow musician friend’s wife works for the charity. I decided on the spur of the moment in February 2014 to hold a last-minute charity auction on Facebook for a weekend away because we had a vacant barn. I figured I would rather someone enjoyed it than it sit empty and we could raise some money for this brilliant local cause. I’m delighted to say that this has snowballed as I subsequently headed up the production and release of a CD recorded at the BBC Suffolk Studios. Details of the project can be found here and if you’d like to buy a copy, just £8 for 18 original tracks, then just ask me. We raised funds from lots of Suffolk businesses including Woodfarm Barns and sales are going well with every penny going to a great cause.
