Mayors Appeal

Mayor of Dacorum, Councillor Terry Douris, has chosen us for his Charity of the Year and is supporting our exciting community project at Northchurch.  We’re over the moon to receive this wonderful recognition and support.

Councillor Terry Douris says ‘I am delighted to have chosen Sunnyside Rural Trust as the charity for my Mayoral Year.   When choosing my charity, I wanted one that had not benefited from being the Mayor’s charity for a decade, which engaged people with disabilities and finally had a presence across Dacorum. Sunnyside Rural Trust meets those criteria perfectly.

The core project that the fundraising will be used for is to pay for a new facility in Northchurch, with the intention to house a small number of rescued livestock for the trainees to care for.’
