  • EEEK!?

Like just about everyone else right now we are going through a time of uncertainty.  We only just about made it through one of our worst winters in many years to then be faced with the sudden closure due to Covid19.  We currently don’t have any money coming in at all and all of our fund raising events we had booked in our diary to do have been cancelled for the foreseeable future.  We were due to be opening up this Spring 2020 to the public to raise some much needed funds to go towards feeding and providing vital care for our animal residents on our care farm many of them which have been rescued.  We have also recently taken on some extra animal residents that have found themselves homeless due to this terrible situation for various reasons and we still have them coming in with a waiting list now building up.


Our Sanctuary is a safe place for vulnerable adults and children where they can be involved and included.  Many struggle to fit in to the ‘normal’ World and we repeatedly hear how they feel safe, included and with a purpose.  It is not only a haven for our animal residents many of who free roam where appropriate, but also for all who visit from volunteers to members of the local community.  No judgement, no restrictions just pure love and acceptance for all.

We have already provided support for many people who when they first walked through the gates were anxious, over whelmed many with little or no self esteem, confidence or respect.  Parents that need a little time out, full time carers, depression, addictions, survivors or domestic and sexual abuse.  No one is excluded it is a safe space for all.


I know we are in our infancy and 2 years ago this was just a dream of mine.  Last September 2019 though it became a reality and although we have much to do with the help of my best friend in the whole World we secured a long term assured lease on a suitable plot of land and started turning that dream into a reality.  My dream to create a safe place for Humans and Animals alike... That dream and now reality is called The Secret Garden Sanctuary and and this is the big and ...


Is to continue to build on this dream .. to continue to create this space for everyone.  When we come out the otherwise of this we the people and animals more then ever will need a space to be .. a safe space .. a community where there is no judgment and just love .. 

We need help with feeding and caring for our many animal residents.  We still have bills that are coming in from vet care we have already received and some to come, rent, insurances, supplies, bedding, feed and more
