Pledge “SaveWHCF”

"I will give £25 to Windmill HIll City Farm for their Save Our Farm Appeal, and I will complete a gift aid form but only if 500 other people will do the same."

— Eric Booth, Farm Member

Deadline to sign up by: 31st October 2009
550 people signed up (50 over target)

Country: United Kingdom
Place: Bristol (view map)

More details
Windmill Hill City Farm in Bristol has set up an appeal to raise £50,000 by Christmas to avoid the threat of closure.

Tens of thousands of people both locally, in Bristol and elsewhere have visited the Farm over the past 33 years. For many of us it was an essential part of our lives when our children were young or when we needed somewhere quiet and peaceful, and yet full of life, in the middle of the city.

If just 500 of us will make this pledge we can reach a quarter of our target.

Come on. Let's get signed up!

  • I have paid my pledge - cannot understand why the I have not done it sign is up?
    Dawn Browning, 7 years ago. Abusive? Report it!
  • Dawn — the "I have not done it" that you see is a button that appears only when you are logged in to PledgeBank. No-one else sees it (except next to their own name, if they happen to be logged in).

    It's a button that you can click on if you've accidentally claimed to have made your payment when in fact you haven't. Clicking the button will remove the green tick next to your name.

    If you *have* already made your payment, then just ignore the button.
  • This site is confusing. I have paid my pledge, but clicked the "I have not.." button next to my name BEFORE I found the explanation hidden over here in an an answer to Dawn Browning. Now the green tick has gone from my name, and I look like a non-paying hypocrite. I'm all for WHCF, but completely over it as far as PledgeBank is concerned. Tim, YOU sort it out. Or not. I know and WHCF knbows that that I've done what I promised.

  • same here s the previous comment - i've paid but not sure that my status has updated on pledge bank. anyway, great pledge, pleased to be a part of it and best of luck to the farm and the animals! will visit whcf as soon as i can again!

  • Hi

    Elissa Hamilton, 7 years ago. Abusive? Report it!
  • and me too! I have payed but can't work out how to do my tick!! Can we email someone to do the ticks for us?! Rowena Kenny
    Rowena Kenny, 7 years ago. Abusive? Report it!
  • Sorry for the confusion, everybody.

    You can add/remove your green tick as many times as you need to on the "My Pledges" page, in the section "Pledges you have signed":

    We're really pleased to have such a big and successful pledge on the site, and we'll be featuring it on our "Success Stories" page shortly.
  • My kids all adored the place - great memories, parties, events and moments of magic - long may it give to others the fun and delight it gave us.
    Katy Hallett, 7 years ago. Abusive? Report it!
  • Its taken awhile for me to work out what to do but I did donate so hope I get a green tic too. Roll on WHCF!
