Let the Telfers keep their home and business

By Becca McCarthy

A Scottish Duke is forcing a family to leave the farm they’ve lived on for years. All because he wants to sell off the land.

But now a 38 Degrees campaign to help them is taking off in Scotland. [1] Their case has been raised at Holyrood and the chairman of the Scottish Land Commission has criticised the treatment of the couple. [2] It’s all over the news, and even Nicola Sturgeon has got involved. [3]

More than 15,000 people have already signed the petition to stop the family from having to leave their home, will you join them today?
