For example, we aim to deliver 8 Rural Weeks during 2018, with each week costing £13,602
Your support is vital in enabling us to deliver on our mission of providing jobs, careers and vocational opportunities for Service Leavers, Reservists and Veterans in the land-based sector. HighGround does not have a fundraising department, or a dedicated fundraising budget, so we rely completely on our fantastic supporters and friends for donations in order to keep going. Your support enables us to continue the important work we are involved in; running Rural Weeks at Bicton College, offering Horticultural Therapy sessions at Headley Court, helping Service Leavers and Veterans find employment, and much more. If you’d like to find out more information about where your donations go, you can visit our Donations page where you’ll find information on all the costs associated with the work HighGround is involved in. Everything that our supporters do to help us really does make a huge difference.
It’s easy to get involved
