De Sangosse, the Cambridgeshire-based specialist in complementary agrochemical chemistry and molluscicides, donated £1,000 split between two local agricultural charities in 2020. The Prospects Trust and YANA will both receive £500 from the company.

The Prospects Trust charity based at Snakehall Farm, Reach in Cambridgeshire is an 18-acre organic care farm and garden. It specialises in providing therapeutic horticulture to individuals with learning difficulties, disabilities and health challenges, while selling its produce around the community.

YANA was set up specifically to offer mental health support for those involved in farming and rural businesses in Norfolk, Suffolk and Worcestershire.

The Covid-19 pandemic meant the Prospects Trust, staff and co-workers faced the most difficult year last year in its 30-year history, while De Sangosse’s donation will enable YANA to offer free counselling to those that need its services by funding two full courses of counselling.

De Sangosse managing director David Cameron says: “We all felt it important to help these two excellent charities in these difficult times.”
