Team Ward head back to West Farleigh to spend the day volunteering at Dandelion Time

On Wednesday 26 July, Team Ward headed over to West Farleigh, Maidstone, to spend the day volunteering at Dandelion Time.

Dandelion Time are a nature-based charity that works with children and their wider families to overcome issues and difficulties, finding them opportunities for change and to rebuild relationships while creating life-long memories. You can read more about Dandelion Time here.

By working as a team, we are able to contribute to the upkeep of the 20 acres so that vulnerable children are able to start their new journey in a safe, picturesque, calming, secure, environment.

Hear from some our Team Ward who volunteered on the day:

“I had a lovely day yesterday, worked hard but enjoyed spending time with the animals and getting to know more about what the charity does. Would love to go again next time! – Also, would like to note the kindness (and patience) from all the Dandelion time staff, they were lovely to meet.”

“Thanks for having me on board. It was easy to forget why we were there, especially when the sun was shining, and we were surrounded by beautiful nature. But throughout the day, I realised the difference we were making for the children who attend the center. It was rewarding and impactful work, and every small act mattered. Keep it up TeamWard!”

“Really lovely day although the work was very physical it was also very rewarding.”

Caroline Fish, Relationship Manager at Dandelion Time, said “Thank you so much for spending the day with us at Dandelion Time yesterday and for rolling up your sleeves and achieving so much in a day. As always, we were all so pleased with the results of your hard work and Camber and Michelle were delighted to get those crucial jobs ticked off their list. To reiterate what was mentioned yesterday – the site is only in such good shape because of the help you have given us over the last two years and there is plenty to do to keep it that way! I’m so glad you’ve been able to see it develop over that time and feel a sense of pride in the contribution you have made. Ward have done so much to create this lovely therapeutic space that is key to the support we give our children and their families – with lots more attending over the summer holidays this year too.”
