Thanks to everyone who has supported our Five Ways to Help Fundraising Campaign. We've nearly reached the £30,000 target needed to support the costs of opening the farm to everyone for free. At the last count the total was at £27,000 the support has been amazing.
On Easter Monday despite the dismal weather we had a great turn out and some very soggy Easter Egg hunters enjoyed the additional challenge. Thanks to everyone volunteers, supporters and stall holders for braving the cold and damp and to our sponsors Fine and Country Estate Agents for putting the Fun in Easter Fun Day and making it a success.
We've still a bit to go to smash our targets and there are two exciting ways to get involved coming up before the end of the month.
In just over a weeks time the lovely Stevie Bowyer will be running the marathon and he has kindly offered to raise funds for the farm while he's at it. Stevie's fast already but lets show him our support and help to drive him on by smashing his fundraising target.
Sponsor Stevie and find out more about his marathon journey here.
Or if you fancy a bit of activity yourself sign up for our annual fun run Cow vs Pig on Sunday 29th April.

In 2018 the farm celebrates 40 years of farming in the heart of Islington however this year sustained funding pressures mean that we need to raise £30,000 to keep going and more to carry out essential renovation work. So we have launched our biggest local fundraising campaign for years - 5 ways to help.
The annual 5KM charity fun run for
Freightliners City Farm
Registrations are open for cowvspig 2018. This year as well as our individual runners we're looking to get a team challenge going. Could you be one of our 10 teams of 4 - 8 people from local businesses or groups who take up the challenge to raise £1000 (remember many of big companies have match funding for employees who raise funds for charity). We're looking for 10 teams to raise £10,000 going a long way to filling the £30,000 shortfall in income we need to fill this year.
Tuesday 13 - Friday 16 February
Open to all young people over 13 who live in Islington.
