VOLUNTEER DAY AT FRIEND FARMED ANIMAL SANCTUARY

This will be a weekend camp over visit for those wanting to stay.  Anyone else can still leave on the Saturday - details to follow but rail fare may change depending on group saves - will keep you posted!

Friend is a vegan run 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. The fare is approximately £8.30 each if 4 go group save or if there is an 'odd one over' then they pay the full fare and we share the difference - usually this is around an extra £1. Please arrive as promptly as you can as we have to work out how many for the fare before getting the tickets and on the train!


Bring wellies, a change of trousers/top and a vegan friendly snack or potluck to share.

Lifts to and from Paddock Wood Station are available.

We usually divide into a 3 groups and we can be feeding, mucking out or sanctuary maintenance.

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 5.30 pm in the summer months but people can leave earlier if they want of course.

Thank you dear friends.

    Hi Dear Friends of the Animals!...remember I will not be there today - I have emailed Carole with the phone number of Friend. If not you will need to look up the website or the FB profile to get the phone number. Call Mark when you get to Paddock Wood for your lift.

    Have a lovely time.

    Hello, Wow I love the idea, especially with such a weather :-)
    Questions:
    Is it not too late to join?
    If I understand well, we are all meeting at 9:15am tomorrow at Charing Cross station, right?
    As in for the food, do we need to bring stuff for the 2 days?
    Wellies, I am thinking of using my hiking shoes + the gaiters I usually use for horse riding. do you think that is fine?
    Sorry, it is the first time I am doing this!

      of course not please meet at Charing x take enough food - not sure how many will be staying over but there will be some company no doubt. Hiking shoes will be fine - but take the gaiters just in case you are working in nettles :)xx

    I'm seriously thinking of making it this time, but how will I get to the Sanctuary, is there a bus going that way or can someone give me a lift? I can get to Tonbridge station (if there is one). Thanks.
