As the reputation of Seeds4Success grows locally and more communities are feeling the impact of our work, the financial support we receive from local individuals is increasing. This is making a significant difference to the charity by enabling us to offer more opportunities to young people. Our ‘Friends of Seeds4Success’ are individuals who are making a regular financial contribution to the charity or are taking an active role in fundraising on our behalf. To find out more about becoming one of our ‘Friends’ please contact Jaki Farrell
In November 2018, Jamie Mackaness, a keen supporter and advocate of Seeds4Success, sadly
passed away suddenly in his sleep, leaving a huge hole in his family and the local community. Jamie
was an energic and enthusiastic individual who during his time in the military, coached and
mentored young recruits and his peers, having a lasting impression on them. He wanted to put these
skills into practice in the local community through his support of Seeds4Success.
Following Jamie’s death, his family and friends have raised and continue to raise a significant
amount of funding for Seeds4Success in Jamie’s name. This funding will be used to establish a
mentoring and coaching project for young people, supporting those who need that bit of extra
support to achieve their goals and aspirations. In addition to personal donations in Jamie’s memory,
family members and friends have also taken part in their own fundraising activities and together
they have raised over £40,000.

We are so grateful for the support of Jamie, his family and friends, and their contribution to
Seeds4Success is making a significant difference to the level of support we are able to offer local
young people. The legacy of Jamie Mackaness will live long in the hearts and lives of young people in
South West Wiltshire and all involved in Seeds4Success.
