VOLUNTEER DAY AT FRIEND FARMED ANIMAL SANCTUARY

Spring - at last!

Friend is a vegan run Farmed animal sanctuary.
If you missed the last two opportunities, we now have two main party visits to FRIEND one via AR and one via Green Vegan - to provide more regular support to this very worthy farmed animal sanctuary.

Today we will be helping clear an area for a shed for the hens/ducks/turkeys. We hope to fund raise for the shed and some useful yard tools - if you would like to make a donation or want to fundraise - please let me know! :)) or pop on to FRIENDS FARMED ANIMAL sanctuary on FB and click on donate!.
We will 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.
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 and a chance to meet like-minded people and interact with many animals that have been rescued from the farmed animal industry (normally including feeding them).......we usually leave around 5pm but people can leave earlier if they want of course.

Thank you dear friends.

    Thank you, Jane, for organising a lovely day out at FRIEND - I actually enjoyed the whole day - from shoveling the muck out so the pigs and cows have it nice again - to having a surprisingly versatile and delicious potluck with lovely people :D

    Good to meet everyone today and to provide some practical help for the sanctuary (even if it was horribly muddy and wet).

    Hi dear friends of the animals - just a reminder that we bring our own snack or potluck to share - the last time i was down the food was amazing - simple sharing so good. Also if going by train we meet at the ticket office at Charing x - we get 50% discount with every 4 in a group so its about 8.50 or thereabouts - so please bring change ready! Wear clothes you dont mind being dirty :)xxx see you at Charing x - if you need my number please email me.

  • Gee S.

    Hello Jane
    Can I ask if lunch will be provided or that we bring our own?
    Look forward to Sat :)

    • Jane A

      oh thats ok Anneka - i have designed the standard post that is on AR, GV and here and it should at least include to bring snack - i do try to remind people nearer the time. It has changed recently as Marion is quite busy at the moment - usually making pies for events - but i heard she is now making cheese lol xxx cant wait to try that (vegan of course)... :)
