Take a digital bluebell walk and help the NHS in south Warwickshire

Leamington Editorial 29th Apr, 2020 Updated: 30th Apr, 2020   0

A FARM has created a digital version of its annual Charity Bluebell Walk to raise money for local NHS services.

Yew Tree Farm at Wootton Wawen holds the walk every year, but like many events, this year’s had to be cancelled due to coronavirus.

But the team have not let that stop them from sharing the beauty of the walk with the public, and have created a video of a virtual walk through the bluebells for everyone to enjoy.

Anyone can watch the video, but the farm is asking people to make a donation to their JustGiving page, which has been set up to support SWFT Charity, the official charity of South Warwickshire NHS Foundation Trust, which supports hospitals in Warwick, Leamington, Stratford and Shipston, together with local NHS community services.

Money raised will go towards the charity’s Covid-19 Staff Wellbeing Appeal, which is supporting staff while they work on the frontline fighting the virus.

Jon Haimes, owner of the land, said “We’ve been hosting the walk for 30 years and it has proven to be really popular with the local community.

“Times are hard for all of us at the moment, but we didn’t want to let this virus stop us, and we wanted to show everyone that whilst things aren’t great at the moment, the world is a beautiful place.

“We want as many people as possible to experience the beauty of the bluebells and we hope to raise as much money as possible for our NHS Heroes at South Warwickshire NHS Foundation Trust”
