The news means that the collection of shops, boutiques and restaurants at Swinfen will organise events throughout the year to not only raise the profile of the fund, but also raise money.

Kat Stubbs from Heart of the Country said: “I’ve seen We Love Lichfield doing some amazing work supporting our local voluntary sector.

“The team behind the fund give away their spare time to help others and I wanted to do my bit.

“With the amazing support of the businesses at the village, I hope we can broaden the awareness of the fund and via a series of events.”

The site at Swinfen opened in 1985 with one barn – with luxury British leather brand Osprey London opening on that original site in October.

Other attractions include the free Green Fairy Trail, a walk through the woods to educate families about waste and recycling.

Donations by visitors to the trail during the summer raised £100. his first amount was handed over to We Love Lichfield as representatives of the businesses at Heart of The Country made the announcement that it would be the chosen charity.

Julian Fisher, We Love Lichfield Fund Advisor, said: “I’d like to thank Kat and everyone at Heart of the Country for supporting us.

“The village attracts people from far and wide and all age groups and their events are great fun. The recent Pumpkin and Scarecrow Festival was superb, and I know 2019 will be filled with fun activities for all the family while making a difference to our local voluntary sector.”
