Willow Tree Farm cash

WILLOW Tree Farm in Shirebrook has started the New Year with a bang after receiving a £6,000 cheque from the NatWest Community Force Awards following an online public vote.

The farm was one of the top three organisations voted for by the public alongside Hope Hospice in Newark and the Nottingham Regional Society for Adults and Children with Autism (NORSACA).

NatWest’s Matt Cross said: “Local residents voted for Hope Hospice, NORSACA and Willow Tree Farm in great numbers and this certainly demonstrates how important these projects are to the community.”
