STORYLINE:

For refugees in Britain, a day at the farm can be a welcome change of scenery and a chance to learn something new. The Yorkshire Dales Millennium Trust charity organizes visits each year, including at a sheep farm where refugees helped with tagging this year’s baby lambs.

Catching lambs isn't easy, so Rodney invited a group of refugees to help on his farm.

The Yorkshire Dales Millennium Trust organise events year round. These trips help asylum seekers to contribute and get involved in new communities while they wait for their asylum claims to be processed.

"They can’t work so a lot of asylum seekers are bored. They love to volunteer and do things but getting out here, they don’t get that chance."

For refugees, it’s a chance to get out of the city, learn the ropes of hill sheep farming and discover the English countryside.
