Help us save our bacon!
As you may have heard in the press this month (Jan 2016) we have had some significant funding cuts this year and there is no let-up in sight.
Over the next four years Southwark Council has been forced to make significant cuts and as such we, along with may other worthy causes are in the firing line. This year will see a 25% cut in funding from Southwark, that said we are still massively grateful for their continued support, allocating 10% of our running costs which are £450.000 a year! This money is essential to the running of the farm and without it we would seriously need to consider our future as a free and open educational space for all to enjoy.
Making back the 25% cut isn’t going to be easy and we need your help!
By far the easiest way to help us is to donate some money to the farm. A quick and easy way to donate is through our Friends donation scheme. It’s £3 a month, you can cancel at any stage with a click of a button. You will be making a significant contribution to keeping us open and doing the things we do.
So what’s in it for you?
We are a small charity and as such don’t have any money , flash prizes or marathon places to give away. We wish we did, but we don’t. What we do have is a wonderful organisation, one that you can help support for just £3 a month.
