Heading 3

The Springwood Family

Springwood Sanctuary is humbled and honoured to be supported by our wonderful ambassadors who are all part of the large beating heart of our sanctuary.  We are so hugely grateful to all the incredible patrons, sponsors, supporters, advisors, guardians and volunteers who give so much in the way of love, support, time and money and who share our values and ethics towards creating a more compassionate world. We consider you all very treasured and valued friends and very much a part of the Springwood family.  

Thank you for the support and continued efforts of everyone who speaks up for our fellow earthlings and to everyone who supports and champions the belief that we can all only really thrive when nature, humans and other beings live in harmony with each other.

To see this beautiful herd so happy and free from anxiety is the benchmark for me. The work Jacqui, David and all the team are achieving at Springwood, surrounded by beautiful and ancient woodland is stunning. To wander through the trees, then meet and spend time with the herd, gently, just being with them in their space is a wonderful healing experience.

Callum Johnston

It's such an honour to be a patron of this wonderful sanctuary. To watch Jacqui and all those who contribute their time here is admirable. i know from spending a lot of time filming the sanctuary that Jacqui is a very dedicated and compassionate woman who cares deeply about the duty she has for this rescued herd. The energy I got from being around everyone involved with Springwood is majestic and I will always hold a fondness in my heart for this serene sanctuary.

Georgina Westoneor

I am a professional photographer and I feel very privileged to have gained a glimpse into the wonderful sanctuary Jacqui has created. Seeing the horses totally at peace in such a natural environment and hearing how they have relaxed and softened now they are allowed to live freely touched me in a way I will never forget. When Jacqui lay down in the midst of this tranquil space and slowly, one by one these horses (and donkeys!) who have been through so much in their own lives… came and lay down with her I felt like I was witnessing a real life fairytale. I feel honoured to be a part of this community. My passion is creating beautiful artwork from precious moments like the ones I have experienced at the Springwood Mindfulness Sacntuary.


Paul Ayling

I am healer who works with people, places and animals and tries to encourage harmony between the three, so to find a sanctuary like Springwood where that harmony is actively created adds song to my heart.


Rebecca Ahimsa-Rae

I am a Reiki practitioner, mindfulness coach and meditation teacher with a big desire to do something positive. I have had the immense honour of being asked to be a patron to one of the most magical, love-filled places I have ever had the good fortune to visit.


Springwood Mindfulness Sanctuary is a glimpse at what a new world could look like; one that is founded on compassion & love, and a joyful, respectful connection with all life. Jacqui, David, the herd, and all at Springwood, have created an absolute haven in a world that can feel too fast, too confusing and far too cruel. You can feel the incredibly special energy as soon as you set foot there and time seems to slow down and everything feels 'right' and at peace. Anything I say really wouldn't do it justice, and I am just blown away to be asked to be a patron of such an amazing place. The world is undoubtedly a better place for having Springwood, Jacqui and all the gang in it. They provide inspiration, hope and a template by which we can create a better world for us all

Jacqui has trained with Smart Foundations director Paula Pluck and is a fully accredited Mindfulness coach for children and adults. Paula is a patron and supporter of Springwood Mindfulness Sanctuary.
