Surrey Docks Farm needs your help saving their bacon

Isabelle Aron

London isn't all smog-filled streets and high-rise buildings, y'know. There is some wildlife in this city, and we're not just talking about the rats lurking in the underground tunnels.

Tucked away from the chaos of Surrey Quays shopping centre is Surrey Docks Farm, which is home to lots of lovely farmyard animals and completely free to visit. But sadly Southwark Council has been forced to cut 25 percent of its funding, which means the farm is in trouble – so they're calling on your help to 'save their bacon' (their words, not ours). You can help by making a one-off donation, or becoming a friend of the farm for £3 a year, which also gets you a 'friends of the farm' fridge magnet and mug. Come on, how can you say no to that?
