Sheffield volunteers have thanked those that helped raise more than £1,000 for security at a family attraction.

A crowdfunding campaign towards better security at Graves Park Animal Farm ended with a total of £1,360 in donations.

The campaign was set up by volunteers at the farm after a string of burglaries and vandalism.

Volunteer Diana Stimely thanked those who donated 'from the bottom of my heart'.

She added: "We are looking for CCTV cameras and new doors and windows for the shop.

"The manager of the farm is getting quotes for these. A new manager is starting on April 1 for the park and farm, and I am having a meeting to discuss with the new manager what work will be done and when.
