The Goat Race

The Spitalfields City Farm in London holds an annual Oxford and Cambridge Goat Race to raise money for and awareness of the farm.

The 2010 race raised almost £3,400 for Spitalfields City Farm. This year's race will be held on Saturday 26 March at Spitalfields City Farm, London (E1). Please show your support for the City's nearest farm to the Square mile by volunteering on the day. There are all sorts of things to do from helping to run the fairground games, serving at one of the bars or the tea stall, helping on the door and moving bales of hay around. They are looking for volunteers for a few hours in the morning or afternoon depending on what you can do.

This promises to be a fun day out so get some friends together and get dowm to the farm - if you're interested in volunteering email Anthony. You can also check out there Facebook page for updates.

If you can't make the Goat Race or don't live in London but would like to volunteer at another one-off event, check out others here.

The farm are always looking for volunteers to maintain the farm and gardens, look after the animals and help them to deliver projects. In short, without volunteers there would be no farm - so your support would be really appreciated. Find out how to get involved
