AN URBAN farm's dream of a new kitchen classroom will become a reality thanks to hundreds of donations.

Oxford City Farm has reached the £40,000 needed to fund moving a modular classroom offered to the charity to its site in Florence Park.

The money will pay for the relocation and transformation of the building into a fully-equipped teaching resource for people to prepare and cook fresh, healthy food grown and picked on site.

In an update on the charity's Crowdfunder page farm founder Lucie Mayer wrote: "If you have donated or spread the word we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

"We started this crowdfunder because we were offered an amazing opportunity.

"With hope in or hearts we decided to give it a go - we knew we would always wonder 'what if'- if we didn't at least try and raise the funds!"

She added: "We knew we were asking a lot from our community, and were really unsure of what could be achieved- but wow have you delivered! We have been truly warmed and humbled by the response.

"We are so excited about the opportunities this building brings."
