We have done it! The £100,000 we needed as match funding for the renovation of the Old Dairy at Fordhall Farm has been reached, enabling us to create a visitor centre, in memory of our father, Arthur Hollins – thank you so much.
Our heartfelt thanks go to all of you who contributed. Your generosity has once again achieved what many thought was un-achievable. The lovely messages and emails of support remind us of the final campaign weeks in 2006 when Fordhall was saved. This is our next major challenge and although raising the £100,000 has been an incredible milestone, the next six months will pose many more challenges. One of the most important will be to continue the fundraising as we work hard to reduce the loans which form the rest of the match funding. We do hope you will follow us on this journey: enabling Fordhall to shine as a fantastic example of what can be achieved when people work together, how food is produced in harmony with nature and how wonderful good local food can be.
Have a great weekend!
