Getting up close to bunnies, goats, pigs, horses and sheep is all part of the fun at the Family Farm Fundraising Day on Monday 6 February at Arion Farm Education Park in Mcleans Island Road.

There will be the opportunity for children of all ages to feed many of the animals by hand. A Bouncy Castle, ice cream cart, face painting and pony rides will be part of the on-site entertainment with plenty of parking.

Just 10 minutes away from the central city, part of the proceeds from the Family Farm Day will go to the Canterbury Charity Hospital Trust which provides free surgery, medical treatments, oral surgery and counselling to Cantabrians in need.

10am until 3pm, Monday 6 February 2017, Arion Farm Education Park, Mcleans Island Road (on the right past Orana Park). $10 adults, $5 children, under-twos free. Family pass (2 adults and 2 children) $25.
