Erskine rescue farm volunteers 'in tears' from support after raising nearly £8k following fire

An animal rescue farm in Erskine has raised almost £8,000 after one of their cabins was deliberately set on fire by vandals.

Emergency services raced to the incident at Lamont Farm in the early hours of Friday morning after they received reports of a blaze just before 4am on Friday, March 31.

The cabin, in which volunteers had their lunch and the animals' medication is kept, was severly damaged by the flames and the water used by fire crews to extinguish it.

Members of the public have flocked to the GoFundMe page of the beloved farm to show their support following the harrowing incident which saw the family attraction temporarily close

So far the farm has raised a whopping £7,936 to help with the repairs and replace the vital equipment that was lost, which has 'blown away' many of the volunteers.

Voluntary manager, Yvonne Elliott, told Glasgow Live: "We have been blown away by the support of the public.

"We never expected people to get behind us so quickly. It has brought many of us to tears the support.

"It's good to know that we mean a lot to people."
