If you are looking for a varied, rewarding and different voluntary role, the Rising Sun Farm Trust Ltd is currently appointing new trustees and directors to help shape the future of the urban-fringe farm and its commercial trading company.

Located in Wallsend, the Rising Sun Farm is run by a charitable trust which has been established for 28 years, with the aim of providing a range of social, environmental and economic benefits to the local area.

The Farm and its Trading Company has recently undergone expansion and are now looking to recruit a number of trustees and directors who can shape and oversee the management of the Farm’s services, events and trading operations at this exciting time.
