Ways You Can Help

–We rely solely on voluntary help and contributions to care for our resident donkeys and ponies–

What can you do to help?

Make a Donation

Did you know it costs in the region of £11,000 per year to keep the sanctuary running? This means that every little donation we receive makes a huge difference to us!

What could your donation buy?

£4 = one bale of hay
£10 = hay supply for 1 day
£20 = 4 days supply of straw bedding
£40 = hard feed for 2 weeks

All donations are very gratefully received, and all go directly to the care of our donkeys and ponies. To donate now please click the PayPal link below (note: adoptions cannot be paid for via PayPal at present, please see below for adoptions):

We also have donation, fundraiser and similar pages on People’s Fundraising (supports multiple payment methods):

We also accept cheques, payable to Folly’s Farm Home of Rest for Donkeys and Ponies.

Fundraising Events

Get creative!!! You could hold a cake sale, bring and buy, car boot sale, or even do a sponsored event such as a bike ride, run, silence or skydive! The possibilities are endless! Fundraising events are so important to us as we are run solely on voluntary help and contributions to care for our donkeys and ponies.

Donate Bric-a-brac

We collect bric-a-brac for sale at the sanctuary itself, at stalls we run at local events, and at car boot sales. If you are able to do a car boot sale for us that would be fantastic, as we are limited on storage, but if not we are happy to take your unwanted items and sell them to raise vital funds.

Collect Postage Stamps

We are able to exchange used postage stamps for money, so get collecting!! It costs nothing to do, but means a lot to us!
