VOLUNTEERS are trying to raise thousands of pounds to rebuild a barn.
Yorkshire Wildlife Trust this week launched their Stirley Community Farm Appeal.
The group needs to raise £30,000 to help rebuild the stone barn at the farm off Ashes Lane in Newsome.
Volunteers are transforming the formerly disused 250-acre site.
The trust launched the new appeal at Hall Bower Chapel on Wednesday.
Spokeswoman Jo Richards said: “The appeal is to raise £30,000 to restore the traditional stone barn, transforming it into a community centre for education and events.
“It will be available for local people and schools to use as well as a base for our events and wildlife conservation.
“We’ve already received a £300,000 grant from Veolia Environmental Trust but need to raise the extra money.”
