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.

"There's been tears, many tears, and there's been a whole lot of determination. Watch this space. For now we breathe #SaveGorgieFarm."
