…for an amazing 65 years of support.
There is always more work to be done. Your kind donations are increasingly important to help Camphill Village Trust continue in their work to provide a lifetime of opportunity to people with learning and other disabilities.
The Trust has spent 65 years growing thriving communities across the UK. The first-ever community, Botton Village in the North York Moors set out to create a space where adults with learning disabilities can achieve their potential and pursue their dreams.
“Camphill Village Trust supports people to achieve their potential. Everyone is appreciated for their own talents and qualities. Because of this people grow in confidence and self-esteem.”
And what a journey it has been. There are now communities across the country, including right here on your doorstep Croft Community in Malton. To celebrate their 65th Anniversary they are asking for your help!
