Fun Run 2016: local MP running for Gorgie City Farm


Local MP Joanna Cherry, has announced that she and her team will be taking part in this year’s Fun Run, raising money for Gorgie City Farm.

Ms Cherry and her team will be taking part in the 5km route around Wester Hailes which starts at WHEC at 10.00am this Sunday 19 June 2016. Be sure to give them a cheer if you see them running!

Gorgie City Farm has supported the local community for 38 years and works with over 100 volunteers every week through training, work experience, social opportunities and personal support. The majority of volunteers are people with support needs, with long waiting lists to join. The Farm also supports young teenagers from disadvantaged backgrounds, providing them with support and practical education they would not find elsewhere.

To secure the future of the City Farm, £100,000 is needed. Please help my office support their fantastic work by donating a little or a lot.
