Alan is a 68 year old man who is very kind, gentle and welcoming. As Alan’s Rural Aid representative I am submitting this job for him. The times I have met and spoken to Alan he has always been very warm and friendly. He lost his wife 2 years ago and now lives on his own. He can not afford to pay for someone to do the fencing and can not manage it on his own even though he is still healthy and well. Fencing is simply a 2 man + job. Whether you know how to fence or know nothing about it, Alan has said he would gladly have you stay and offer meals and board to do the work together and show you how. This job would be perfect for any volunteer looking to help an older widowed farmer who would offer lovely company and no doubt lots of good old yarns along the way. Zoe, RA Representative.
