In line with the Government guidelines we have cancelled all on site events
All our events were fundraisers for the sanctuary and will leave a hole in our income, but we understand many of you, our supporters, will also be looking at holes in your income over the next few weeks – here’s hoping we can all pull together and help each other through this.
THANK YOU FOR ALL YOUR SUPPORT.
Please come back to this page for future updates
Since the onset of COVID-19, Hope Pastures has suffered financially due to the cancellation of essential fundraising events. With so many mouths to feed, hooves to trim, teeth to have rasped, wormers to be given, bedding, hay and feed to buy, to name only a few aspects of care, we are now really starting to worry about the long term impact that our small charity may be facing.
To help raise money for our beloved four-legged residents we have launched a brand new challenge and can’t wait to see all of our supporters taking part!
****Please see bottom of this page for a full list of dates for both events ****
