universal-wishlistWe now have an Amazon Wishlist. If you would like to buy something specific for the animals, have a look at our list.

We would also like to say A BIG THANK YOU to all of you that have already bought things for us or have donated in any other way!


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.

If you buy your presents & gifts through www.easyfundraising.org.uk/ causes/hopepastures it will link to 100’s of your favourite sites and every purchase you make will earn 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?


Feeding 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.



Welcome to the Hope Pastures website.

Donations of Goods We are very grateful for donations of:

  • Horse/pony goods
  • New items for raffles, tombolas and prizes
  • Clothes, shoes & handbags which we can turn into cash through recycling
  • DVDs & CDs
  • Antiques, collectibles & jewellery
  • Clean & complete household goods, toys & bric-a-brac

We cannot take electrical items due to the legislation surrounding these and we can’t manage lots of dirty/broken goods, so we’d be very grateful if you could check items before donating them. We’re now registered on eBay so you can sell goods on eBay on our behalf and eBay will send us the funds. eBay don’t charge fees for charity sales, so it won’t cost anything. Details on how to sell for us on eBay are on the Ways to Help page.



Hope Pastures would like to thank its website contributors, Sophie Kendrick, Josephine Tanser, Kim Pengelly and Philip Gawthorpe, for their combined effort in bringing you this website.
