A CAMPAIGN to save Gorgie City Farm could be given another boost today if a proposed £27,000 council cash injection goes ahead.

Leader Adam McVey intends to ask the authority to sign-off on the grant to give the liquidator more time to find a buyer.

The much-loved attraction went bust on November 1 with a total of 18 jobs lost.
