In 2008, Jemma Harding was living and working as a freelance TV producer/director in London when one morning cycling to work she was hit by a lorry and dragged 30 yards along the main road. After 12 hours of surgery she woke up and said “I’m moving home, getting a collie, and farming full time – this was the best thing I ever did.”
Determined not to let the accident beat her, she got back on her bike within 6 months. Fast-forward to the present day, Jemma is proud to be a Dorset Shepherdess, overcoming mental and physical challenges, and is an advocate of physical fitness and community spirit as a route to improving mental health and resilience in rural industries.
Join us on Wednesday 24th August at 7:30pm to hear Jemma’s inspirational story, and find out what support is available through RSABI.
