Charity Credentials

The John Simonds Trust is an educational charity. We were registered with the Charity Commission on 29th April, 1986 (number 294363) for the advancement of education and the provision of facilities in the interests of social welfare. We have four main aims.

  1. To encourage qualities of leadership, self-confidence and mutual respect in young people
  2. To promote a love and understanding of the countryside
  3. To enable people to learn about the countryside and agriculture
  4. To develop co-operation between the agricultural community and the public.

We hope you enjoy your time at Rushall Organic Farm, and go home having had an experience which taught you a little more about some aspect of the countryside.
