Funds boost for city farm.

A COVENTRY community project has been boosted by a generous donation from a national company.

Coventry City Farm, in Clarence Street, Hillfields, has been given pounds 3,000 by electricity provider npower, which will go towards running costs and maintenance.

The project, which includes a sensory garden, teaching areas and a farm shop, is open seven days a week, and receives more than 60,000 visitors annually.

Farm manager Pat Baldwin said: "We are absolutely delighted with the money npower has donated.

"It will really help with the day-to-day running of the farm."

Coventry City Farm is currently looking for mature volunteers with a love of animals or gardening to help out with general farm duties. Call 024 7622 5323.
