The Julian and Renate Sleigh Trust

by James Sleigh   (2014-08-04)

This year we are celebrating 50 years of Camphill Village (West Coast), which was established in 1964 by Julian and Renate Sleigh in one modest house set on open sandy farmland some distance outside of Cape Town. Over time it has evolved into a working farm of some 220 hectares with various sub enterprises, and 15 homes that can house ninety-eight adult residents in total.
In honour of Julian and Renate’s vision and lifelong commitment, through our fifty year celebrations, we aim to raise funds to set up a trust fund named after them, that will enable Camphill to support more people with intellectual disabilities who desperately need a place in a safe and caring community and who are vulnerable to abuse and exploitation.
All funds raised during our 50 years celebration will be invested in this trust, creating a capital base to allow Camphill to provide more places for those most at risk and give them a secure future.
