Wild Thang are very proud to announce our support towards the iconic site, Strawberry Field.
The tourist attraction is owned by the Salvation Army, which they use the profits from the visitor experience to keep the gates open permanently and to support Steps at Strawberry Field, a set of initiatives for people with disabilities or other employment challenges. Of course, this is such a fantastic cause, and we are very happy that we can help.
In September 2019, Strawberry Field, the famous location immortalised by John Lennon in the Beatles song "Strawberry Fields Forever," first welcomed visitors via its recognisable red gates.
Through their exhibition, you can learn about the history of the iconic site; including stories from the former children’s home and about how John came to write the famous song. The site now serves a unique addition to Beatles tourism.
The site holds an interactive visitor exhibition, a café, a shop, and quiet garden places for spiritual reflection.
Entry to the cafe, shop and gardens is free. If you would like to purchase tickets to their visitor experience, they can be booked in advance by following the link at the bottom of our page.
THE WORK OF STRAWBERRY FIELD
The site is home to Steps to Work programme for young adults with learning challenges and other hurdles to employment.
All proceeds from the exhibition, café and shop go towards supporting the Steps at Strawberry Field programmes, which cater to those who face obstacles to employment such as learning disabilities. There is more information if you follow the link at the bottom of the page.
WILD THANG SUPPORTS STRAWBERRY FIELD MOUNT TOUBKAL TREK
We are proud to announce that we will be donating branded hoodies for their Mount Toubkal Trek on the 3rd – 7th August 2022 free of charge. Lesley from Strawberry Field came for the full Wild Thang tour and we were able to hear about all the amazing work Strawberry Field do. Lesley had actually been completing her regular training in line for the trek taking place in August that morning, this team means business!
They are aiming to raise £2500 each for the Strawberry Field’s Step to Work Programme.
It costs £10,000 for one trainee to go through the Steps to Work programme; and with all of your support, the fantastic team at Strawberry Field can continue the work they do to help more and more people achieve their dreams of paid employment.
This once in a lifetime adventure will allow the trekkers to take on the Atlas Mountains of Morocco and summit its highest peak - Mount Toubkal.
All of us at Wild Thang wish the team good luck on their fundraising and the trek they will be completing in August.
