Sacrewell Farm in Thornhaugh gets £50,000 from The National Lottery Heritage Fund to help with effects of coronavirus lockdown
Sacrewell Farm has received a £50,000 cash boost from The National Lottery Heritage Fund to help with the effects of the coronavirus pandemic.
During the lockdown, the farm in Thornhaugh was unable to welcome visitors, participants or to carry out fundraising activities. Funds raised from the farm are usually reinvested into the upkeep of the site and the livestock, which is what the donation from the Lottery has gone towards.
General manager Lee Scowen said: “Thanks to The National Lottery and its players we can now continue our work here at Sacrewell Farm.
