Money for nothing Most people buy things on-line these days, whether it's Amazon, Ebay or one of hundreds of other on-line suppliers. For those of you who don't know,if you buy your presents through /www.spendandraise.com/HopePastures/ it will link to 100's of your favourite sites.
Every purchase you make earns money for the sanctuary, without costing you a penny more. Just think, if we made, say 2%, on every purchase our supporters made on-line how much animal feed and bedding that would buy ?
Can you give a horse a loving home?
We have several horses / ponies needing a good home to go to.
Please see our 'Horses for re-homing page'
Volunteers wanted: Could you spare some time?
We are in need of people to help with the following:
Vacancy for volunteers at Hope Pastures We are looking for volunteers to staff our Visitor Center. If you can spare at least half a day a week to staff the center in it's opening hours which are between 10am and 3pm, please let us know. We need someone to sell refreshments and chat to our visitors and make them feel welcome. References will be required.
Together Trust and Hope make a brighter future!
.....and you can be part of it.
Follow this link to find out more about the Trust Technique and what they are doing for Hope PasturesFeeding the animals We kindly request that you do not feed the animals as this causes fighting and unnecessary stress within the herd. You are more than welcome to bring food for the animals and leave it in the box provided and we will ensure that it is given at feeding times. Thank you for your understanding and co-operation.
That time of year! Yes it's that time of year again where we struggle to think of something original to buy your friends and family or even a 'secret Santa' gift for a colleague at work. A tin of biscuits, a box of chocolates or a pair of socks just doesn't cut it these days. A Hope Pastures Adoption Pack is the perfect gift. In fact it is two gifts in one. There is the gift you give to your friends and family which shows you care about helping those less fortunate, and then there is the gift of love and care that goes to the horses.
Buying an adoption pack couldn't be simpler. Just go to the 'Adoption' page and fill in your details. Don't forget to put the full name of the person who is to receive it in the comments box.
At only£15 for the year it won't break the bank but can make all the difference to a horse in need.
