We are aiming to raise enough money to cover the costs of moving the Springwood herd and securing the land at our new sanctuary in Wales!
This beautiful footage was filmed by Callum Johnston at Springwood Sanctuary.
Unfortunately, in September we were given the news that our landlady will be moving, as very sadly her husband passed away earlier this year having lost a long battle with cancer. So, our search for new land re-commenced.
During the past eight years we have been growing the sanctuary and expanding our community with the intention of finding permanent land for the herd to give them the long-term security and safety they so desperately need. At long last we are able to achieve this with the support of a charity who are offering us land and a home in Wales. We are so happy that it will at last be the herd’s FOREVER HOME!
So, on 11th November we relocated the Springwood herd to KindaVillage, nestled in the beautiful South Wales countryside. The land has incredible energy with a spring which supplies the retreat cottages as well as sparkling white quartz under the ground, a meandering river, hills and many beautiful old trees. The eleven horses, ponies and donkeys now have 80 acres of Welsh countryside to explore and we are once again living on site to care for their every need.
However, the cost of moving the herd and all of their shelters and necessary equipment was huge, so your generosity and support is vitally needed to ensure we can continue to care for the herd and guide them as safely and peacefully as possible through this huge transition. We have created and been given lots of beautiful gifts to offer you through our Crowdfunder in exchange for your greatly appreciated support which we hope that you will enjoy!
Every penny raised will go straight to the herd to help them settle safely in their new home.
We realise that many across the world are still struggling during these difficult times and therefore we want to assure you that your donations will be put to good use. The herd is and always will be our main priority therefore we have not factored our own moving costs into this amount, nor do we receive a salary from the sanctuary, so that the impact you can have in supporting these beautiful animals will not be diminished.
The herd's moving costs total £19,500 so we desperately need your help! This money will go towards the costs of having safely transported them together as a herd, their current shelters and all existing Mudcontrol slabs. Also, with your support we will be able to afford adequate fencing for the land as well as buying the necessary new Mudcontrol slabs to create enough safe hard standing in various areas across their new home as the weather gets wilder and wetter!
