HAYLANDS Farm says it needs financial support to guarantee its future.

Based in Salters Road in Ryde, it is running a fundraising appeal HERE.

It had feared that it may need to rehome some of its animals due to a lack of funds.

The farm works with Isle of Wight Mencap to provide training, education and work experience for Islanders with a learning disability.

In a post on its Facebook page, it has thanked those who have supported it, including by buying its eggs and by providing dontations of hay for its animals.
