Volunteer Opportunities

At the Sanctuary we are always looking for help from volunteers in various areas.  Here is a CURRENT list of areas where we need volunteer support:

HORSES: Volunteers with equine experience needed at all times.

RABBITS: Monday to Friday 9am-11am for when our rabbit accommodation opens this Summer.

HENS/FERRETS: Monday to Friday 9am-11am

CATS: Monday to Friday 9am – 11am


EBAY HELP: At any time.  Helping our fundraising by listing items for sale from home and posting them off to buyers.

 FUNDRAISING: Help always needed.  Our fundraising usually involves running a tombola  or selling cakes on a stall at the Artisan or a local Fair.  You are always teamed up with at least one or two other people and it really is great fun.  There is NO hard sell, or door to door type fundraising and we are a really friendly bunch. You can help on an ad hoc basis where the events fit with your own diary, and normally it’s just for a two hour time slot.

To apply for any of these Volunteering Opportunities, please fill in our online volunteer form or download a copy and post it in to:
