Farmers are being asked to ‘turn their fields purple’ in support of a charity working to help seriously ill children in the UK. Agricultural supplier Carrs Billington has announced a fifth year of support for children’s charity WellChild. The FarmingUK Team reports.
So far, the company has donated more than £36,000 from the sale of its unique purple bale wrap and fundraising activities by staff.
Another significant contribution will be made to the charity this year, and farming businesses are needed to help. For the 2020 campaign, farmers are being encouraged to use eye-catching purple bale wrap and stickers and display the large WellChild sticker prominently.
Once displays are created on farms, in fields beside roads and paths, farmers are being urged to share pictures on social media using the hashtag #purplebales and tag @WellChild on social media.
