Thank you! Thank You! Thank you!
We are thrilled to announce that we reached and even exceeded our fundraising target. It was tense in the run up, but thanks to 226 of you we made it beyond £12,000 on the crowd funder and received an additional £1,700 in cheques and other donations from another 20 or so people. Once we have paid fees and costs associated with the campaign and claimed gift aid on eligible donations we hope to clear between £13,500 and £14,000.
This is an incredible sum. By enabling us to get water and electricity on site it has hugely positive implications for the long term future of the farm.
It also shows the fantastic support we have in the community and will certainly help us with accessing other pots of funding in the future
It was an exciting and exhausting process! As a team we have learned a huge amount from it. Many of us are now going off for a well earned break over the rest of August. We look forward to returning to the project refreshed and full of energy to take the City Farm to the next level.
