We have been asked so many times if we have an Amazon Wish List ... and finally we have. As you can imagine, with around 400 mouths to feed daily, our weekly shopping basket is always full to bursting, therefore any help we can get is truly appreciated. We have included several day-to-day products that we are constantly in need of, but we have also listed a few slightly more expensive items, which would assist our work, and that we also know the sanctuary will soon have to replace. For further information, please click on the Amazon Wish List link below.
Wanted ... some very special supporters to become VIPs of Farm Animal Rescue Sanctuary. Over the years we have been amazed by the backing and generosity of our loyal supporters ... and now we are launching a new fundraising scheme to recruit Very Important People to help keep FARS ticking over on a weekly, monthly and annual basis. It costs in excess of £80,000 to keep FARS afloat each year, the majority of which is paid on feed and vets bills for the 400 or so animals. We also have to pay our rent, electricity, water, mucking out, shearing and miscellaneous other bills.
Our funds are diminished at present and our goal going forward is to try and cover our costs in a measured way, rather than depend on the hand-to-mouth existence we have led in recent years. It is alarming when our funds get low and there is nothing to fall back on – especially for Carole, who works 24/7 on caring for the animals – and we are hoping this scheme will help alleviate some of those ever-present fears. We have been extremely lucky to have had some magnificent donations in the last 12 months but we are asking for each VIP to pledge at least £50 a year – that’s less than £1 a week, and you can’t buy a cup of coffee for £1 these days! – to help cover the day-to-day bills. All VIPs will receive a special bespoke FARS VIP certificate, a FARS VIP wristband and/or car sticker and regular updates from the sanctuary by email or post. You can become a FARS VIP by sending a cheque for £50 (or more) to FARS, PO box 6377, Stratford-upon-Avon CV37 1PX or by donating at least £50 via this website here - Please help if you can ... Thank you so much for your support of FARS.
