Raise the Roof

The stables are at the heart of the farmyard and house rare breed and rescue animals including; donkeys, ponies, sheep, goats, & cows at night, 365 days a year.  Standing for over 30 years it has had numerous re-paints, parts added and removed, and been a safe home for many residents, some even calling it their place of birth! 
"The time to repair the roof is when the sun is shining." John F. Kennedy
Now starting to show its age, the stable roof is in dire need of replacement before next winter.
Your donations will help us Go Green! We are aspiring to replace the roof with sustainable materials and power the lighting in an environmentally friendly way to last long into the future!
Keeping our residents housed safely means we can continue to  give many Londoners the chance to meet an iconic farm species on their door step.
Our IndieGoGo campaign got the ball rolling with supporters raising £1000!

Being so central, the Borough of Tower Hamlets is one of the poorest for air quaility in London so all the more need for projects like Spitalfields Farm to inspire others in making a free commitment to become a Cleaner Air Business.
