SPITALFIELDS City Farm has been shortlisted for cash from the National Lottery for its work with heritage animal breeds.

The farm won a £50,000 lottery grant to bring more breeds of rare farm sheep and poultry to the city and teach townies more about animals.

Children from nearby schools had a chance to learn more about them and use a specially created activity booklet and coffee table book.

Now farm manager Helen Galland is urging people to vote for the farm to win £2,000 for animal feed in the National Lottery's prize as best heritage funded project of the year.

Fans of the farm in Buxton Street can vote by calling a hotline

0844 686 7161 or online at www.lotterygoodcauses.org.uk/awards by June 19.
