It was a joy to bring the stories of young lives changed to young girls who are so eager to help in any way that they can.

 

White Square

Recently, Anna was fortunate to be invited by Wade House at MLC School to attend their Chapel Service and speak to the girls about Triple Care Farm (TCF).

Wade House has had a long-standing relationship with SDMF and have donated their hard earned money towards the TCF program. The funds collected during the Chapel Service on Sunday were donated to the farm.

Resilience – Stronger, not broken is the theme the Wade girls are concentrating on; this ties in with our young people at TCF who face many challenges on the road to seeking and finding support.

We know that around 70% of the young people entering the rehab program have previously thought about, or tried to take their own lives.

But they didn’t.

We could learn a lesson from the young people at TCF, that sometimes resilience is demonstrated by asking for help.

Thank you to all the girls (especially those who performed) Head of House Robyn Langford, Head of Senior Years Mr Scotney and the Chaplains.  

We look forward to showing a group of visitors from Wade House around the farm in the coming months.
