Two days to go before Nicholas Jones, Theresa Mcgouran and Jan Taylor fall out of a plane tied to a complete stranger. This, some say "crazy stunt" is to raise funds to buy field shelters so that all our animals will have shelter from sunshine and snow all year round.
Originally we hoped to raise enough for one field shelter, thanks to a very generous friend who will remain anonymous until after the event, we have almost reached a target which will enable us to buy five shelters!!
The team have now raised the amazing sum of £12, 840.
We just a need a few hundred pounds more to do this, so
please dig around in your pockets or behind the sofa for any loose change or spare notes, all will be welcome. Let's make sure we get this last shelter. Closing date to receive funds is 21st June, when the name of our mystery friend will be revealed. Thank you.
The Farm Animal Sanctuary's fearless founder Jan is leaping once more into the unknown and this time she is aiming sky high!! With a sponsored 15,000 feet Skydive over Salisbury plain on 10th May 2018. At aged 77 Jan will be one of the oldest people in the UK to skydive. Funds are needed for the rescue and care of all the animals at the sanctuary that Jan founded 25 years ago. When asked why she has taken on the challenge the big hearted founder replied: "I don't much like flying, I definitely don't like heights, I'll be 78 in a few months time, which is why I've decided to be pushed out of an aeroplane strapped to a fit young man before it's too late and my nerve goes completely. I'm doing it because we desperately need extra funds to accommodate our fast growing numbers of ewes and their lambs. Forty rescued ewes taken in last November are all busy lambing. We're expecting between seventy and eighty lambs to be born so we need to buy two field shelters so that mum and babies can have their own space and stay together. I'm doing this for them, I'm looking forward to a happy landing and a large glass of champagne but most of all to be able to say "we've done it, we've given these animals the comfort they deserve"."
