Help feed and look after the animals at Swithens

Swithens Farm is a family owned working farm and visitor attraction.  We are very hands on and provide a wonderful experience for both adults and children.  We also provide school trips and adult learning activities.  
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic we have had to close to the public and furlough all our staff. 
We were hoping to manage our finances until we are allowed to reopen but after the latest update from our Prime Minister we are not expecting to be open until at least July.  
We have rehomed some of our animals and weaned our lambs and calves which were being bottle fed.  A lot of the animals have been turned out in the fields but we are now struggling with feed and veterinary bills. 
We would be extremely grateful to anyone who could help us with funding to keep the animals until we are allowed to reopen.  The last thing we want is to have to sell them and close down completely.
