My friends Cathy and John took part in a volunteer day at Tower Hill Stables Animal Sanctuary in Essex. This is another great way to give back to the animals and you get to have lots of cuddles too! It is always helps up refocus and remember what we are fighting for in our activism.
Over to Cathy to hear what her and John got up to.
“Tower Hill Sanctuary is run by Fiona Oakes (distance runner), her partner Martin and mother Meg and is in the process of relocating, today my husband John and I attended a volunteer work party at the new location that at the moment houses horses and cows, eventually when the new place is ready the other animals will come as well.
Today we painted fences, shovelled manure and helped muck out, it was a pleasure to help out for such a great cause. We made friends with the animals especially one beautiful horse that didn’t want me to paint the fence, she wanted me to fuss her and pull up long grass for her to eat, and so I painted with her head on my shoulder.
It’s so nice to spend time with vegan activists and get stuck in. We can’t wait for the next volunteer day.
If you would like to take part in the next volunteer day check out Tower Hill Stables on Facebook. If you’re not in Essex see where your local sanctuary is and find out what you can do to help out.
