VOLUNTEER DAY AT FRIEND FARMED ANIMAL SANCTUARY

Meet at Charing Cross station at 9.15 - by the ticket office. Please bring £5 note and some pound coins for the fare - or drive down.  For a group of 4 or more there is a 50% discount fare.

Bring wellies, a change of trousers/top and a snack or potluck to share. Lifts to and from Paddock Wood Station are available.

These visits are always enjoyable: usually we help with outdoor maintenance and other mini projects around the sanctuary.  Its also  chance to meet like-minded people and interact with many rescued farmed animals (normally including feeding them).......we usually leave around 5pm but people can leave earlier if they want of course.

 

Thank you dear friends.

    A really nice day with the animals and humans! A wonderful farm with very happy animals. Working as a team was a lot of fun. Delicious vegan food too! It was really nice to meet you all

    Lovely pics Jess. It was great to meet you all (and the gorgeous animals, of course), who knew shovelling poo could be so enjoyable. Hope to see you all again soon, I'll be more organized next time so I can offer a lift there and back. Thanks again.
