Surrey Docks Farm appeal for more donations

Surrey Docks farm in Canada Water, South East London, is appealling to the public for financial help after Southwark Council has had to cut the grant it gives it by 25%. 

The farm which has been open for 40 years says it is grateful for the continuous contributions the council makes but may still have to make major changes in the way it's run if the shortfall can't be met.

Southwark Council says unfortunately during a time of budget cuts it has to make tough decisions.
