Beneath the Wood have been blessed with some wonderful volunteers in the last year or so, but special mention must go to Rob ‘Jester’ Hayden.
Rob has spent the best part of 2020 residing in a caravan at the sanctuary and as well as helping on a daily basis feeding and caring for the pigs and other animals, he has also done all manner of essential building work, not least the construction of two pergolas over the new outside kitchen and dining area which has been named Jester’s Courtyard in his honour.
Eddi kept Rob company for over a month and regulars Julie and Maura have also gone above the call of duty to help while talented musician Abi Foster, who had her head shaved to raise over £1,000 for BTW, also came and sang to the pigs! Check out her music at abifoster.co.uk.
We are always looking for volunteers … whether for a few hours, a day, a weekend, a week or even longer! The work can be heavy and tiring … but it is very satisfaying. And you will get a warm welcome from Sasha, the other volunteers and, of course, all the sanctuary’s animals.
If you have some time to spare give Sasha a call on 07485-238418.
