Comic Relief: Maidstone's Dandelion Time project


Dandelion Time funds work with young people who have experienced trauma

The Maidstone-based charity, Dandelion Time, gives youngsters the chance to muck in on a working farm, and helps them to deal with emotional and behavioural problems.

Dandelion Time applied for a grant for £10,000 to pay for a member of staff to help the children find a new way forward.

In February, BBC Blue Peter presenter Andy Akinwolere visited the project and brought with him a cheque for the full grant from the Comic Relief fund.
