Save Gorgie City Farm fundraising campaign reaches £100,000 target
Mystery £5,000 benefactor gets them over the line
A CAMPAIGN to save Gorgie City Farm has smashed through its £100,000 target in less than a month.
The much-loved attraction went bust on November 1 with a total of 18 jobs lost.
Kind-hearted donors have dug deep while Edinburgh City Council signed-off a £27,000 grant to give the liquidator more time to find a buyer.
"We did it. In under 4 weeks we have raised £101,040.," the farm tweeted.
"This afternoon we had another huge anonymous donation of £5,000.
"There's been tears, many tears, and there's been a whole lot of determination. Watch this space. For now we breathe #SaveGorgieFarm."
