We are very sorry to announce that we must postpone the Farm’s Open Day this Sunday (26/9/21). Unfortunately the weather forecast doesn’t look too good. We are sorry to have do this at such short notice, but feel that it is in everyone’s best interests. With Covid safety restrictions still in place it’s not recommended to have a large number of people indoors all at once in our restricted main barn space.
Raffle tickets will still be available to purchase at the Farm and also online (please send us a message on Facebook Messenger). The Raffle will now be drawn on 16th October, and Tombola tickets may also be purchased after Sunday.
We hope you can come and join us on Sunday 26th September when we will be holding our annual Open Day. Although it will be smaller than previous years, to allow us to spread things out safely, we still have a lot planned for it! Games, tombola, candy floss, bouncy castle and more – a great day out for all the family! This will help raise much needed funds for the Farm and allow it to continue to care for the animals throughout the winter. Every penny raised goes towards caring for the animals, and who knows you might even win one of our fabulous raffle prizes!
These are some of the prizes up for grabs, so why not pop along on the day and join in the fun. One of our favourite prizes has to be the glamper it includes hair curler, eyeshadow pallet, eyelashes and much more. For anyone wanting some tickets, these are only £1 per strip and can be purchased by sending a private message to our Facebook page here.

Lamont Farm Project has now enrolled with AmazonSmile. If you make eligible Amazon purchases for yourself through the AmazonSmile link and select us as your charity we will receive a small donation from them each time you make an eligible purchase. You use the same account on amazon.co.uk as you do on AmazonSmile (smile.amazon.co.uk). The only difference is you must use the link to the AmazonSmile webpage. Your Amazon shopping cart, Wish List and all other account settings remain unchanged.
On your first visit to smile.amazon.co.uk you need to select a charitable organisation to receive donations from eligible purchases before you begin shopping. Simply search for Lamont Farm Project, select us as your charity and Amazon will remember your selection. Thereafter, every eligible purchase you make at smile.amazon.co.uk will result in a small donation to us.
The amount for each order might only be pennies, but this can soon add up if enough people use it. We are grateful for all donations, no matter how small, so if you already shop at Amazon this is a great way for you to help us out without any effort at all.
We understand that this time of year really is tight for everyone, but we are still appealing for your help! If you can spare even just £1, we now have over 5500 followers on the page – if even half could donate £1, or even just 50p, it would go a long way towards ensuring the survival of Lamont Farm. We receive minimal grants from other bodies, so really do rely on donations to continue to meet all running costs and continue to care for the wide variety of animals here on the Farm.
The cost of everything is increasing, food/bedding/electricity/gas amongst some of the major costs, and we also have large vet bills that need to be paid. Can you help? Please donate what you can, every little really does help!
You can donate by paypal (firstname.lastname@example.org), bank transfer (please PM us to be sent details), cash if you pop into the Farm or cheque (made payable to Lamont Farm Project). Or does your workplace fundraise for a nominated charity? Why not see if they could do a fundraiser for Lamont Farm!
You can also pay money directly towards our vet bill, please PM us if you would like details on how to do this.
The maintenance work at the farm is never-ending so we are always looking for help from anyone who is willing to donate their time and skills.
If there are any colleges that need an on-site training ground for up and coming joiners, plumbers, electricians; then Lamont Farm is the place for you!! Examples of some of the work done previously are –
Two lean-to’s built.
The lights looked at in the main barn.
Showerwall put up in the ladies toilet.
A window put in the barn.
This could also be a good opportunity for any building/plumbing firms for on-site training for apprentices!!?? Or if you just want to donate your time, any help will be much appreciated. 🙂
Please contact the farm on 0141 812 5335 , email us at email@example.com or send us a message via our Facebook page if you can help.
Thank you very much for your time and consideration.
