Second Lockdown – COVID-19 Update

With the announcement of a second nationwide lockdown, starting at 00:01 on Thursday 5th November 2020, Vauxhall City Farm once again has to shut its gates from Thursday onwards. The situation will be reviewed on December 2nd and we will update you of any developments here on our website and via our social media channels.

Vauxhall City Farm relies on donations from visiting public and income generated through our bookable services. This 2nd Lockdown is a new threat to our survival.

We are appealing to all our supporters to help us continue to be there to serve our community.

Help #SaveVauxhallCityFarm

After the blow of the first lockdown earlier in the year, we invested a large amount of time, resources, and money to implement COVID-19 safety measures across the farm, and train the staff team and volunteers. Like many charities we had just got to a point where our programmes were back up and running, helping to support the local community through this difficult time. The latest announcement of this second lockdown, is very challenging for the farm, and threatens our continued survival.  We have many animals to care for and many children and young people that rely on the services provided by Vauxhall City Farm.

A donation to our emergency appeal #SaveVauxhallCityFarm will go some way to ensuring that after this crisis is over, Vauxhall City Farm will still be here to serve our community.

Vauxhall City Farm was started in the 1970s on a demolition site by a group of local people wanting to make a difference in the community, and we know how much the Farm means to many children, families, and individuals in Lambeth and beyond.

We will do everything in our power to keep the Farm going, aiming to still be here for the community, when the world returns to normal, but we know we will not be able to do this without your support.

If you are able, please help #SaveVauxhallCityFarm by donating as generously as you can, and by spreading the word about our emergency appeal.

Thank you.

Stay safe, and take care of each other.

Yours

Monica Tyler

Chief Executive
