Scouts are tackling the volunteer part of their World Challenge badge by helping out at Lislagan farm. Lislagan farm is a groundbreaking facility for children and adults with learning disabilities, autism and mental health issues to avail of social and leisure, fun and friendship, health and well being initiatives and therapeutic interventions.
This week we began clearing grass from the bases of their fruit trees and general weeding on the pathways around the planters. Of course, we had to have a game of rounders afterwards. We will be visiting another couple of weeks in May to complete the volunteer element of the badge.
