About the Trust

Whirlow Hall Farm Trust is an educational trust that was established by Alan Aikin in 1979. Alan grew up in the inner city and was evacuated to a farm during the Second World War. He was so profoundly affected by his experience that he decided to create somewhere in the countryside where inner-city children and those from challenging backgrounds could learn and grow.
