Free entry on the morning of September 28th. Can that be right? Has Old Macdonald gone mad? Free entry between 10 am and 1 pm, surely not?
Well actually, the answer to those questions is yes, possibly, yes, no! Old Macdonald welcomed a rather unusual guest the other day, Muggy the Macmillan’s Cancer Support Mascot who came down to promote the charity’s very popular Biggest Coffee Morning campaign. And Muggy somehow persuaded Old Mac that on the 28th he would admit everyone free of charge for the morning in return for their making a donation to the Charity Appeal instead of their entry fee.
Then everyone could enjoy the farm for the morning, and of course buy a coffee in the cafe if they wished, whilst supporting an amazing cause. Muggy must be very persuasive, must be his caffeine content, so loads of people rushed down to the farm on the 28th and raised over £ 140 for this very worthwhile appeal. The weather was kind, and we hope everyone had as good a time on the day as we did. From what they were saying, we reckon they did!
