Final Family Fun Day at Essex Horse Charity
Remus Horse Sanctuary will be opening its gates for the last time this year on Sunday 6 October and visitors, members and supporters are welcome to come and meet the 200+ animals and learn about the Sanctuary’s horse welfare programme, from 1pm to 5pm.
Parking is available on-site, with disabled access, and dogs are very welcome on a lead. Admission will be charged at just £4 per adult and £2 for children.
The Open Days at the Sanctuary are fun and interesting for the whole family, with bouncy castles, a children’s entertainer, live music from Midnite Blu, delicious refreshments – including gluten-free sandwiches and homemade cakes – and lots of stalls including a tombola and raffle.
The Sanctuary provides rehabilitation and care for around 200 animals, including horses, ponies, donkeys, one cow that was born at the Sanctuary, along with goats, sheep and cats, and has been doing so since it was founded in 1983.
Every year the charity faces the threat of closure due to spiraling costs and the Open Days are a vital source of fundraising. Due to its location on greenbelt land, Remus can only open to the public for a limited number of days each year.
The Sanctuary also host Afternoon Teas, Children’s Pony Days and complementary therapy workshops, the details for which can be found on the website. The 2020 programme of events will be launched shortly.
Sue says, “We always look forward to our Open Days and the last one of the season is always bitter sweet! We enjoy inviting the public to come and visit the Sanctuary and learn more about what we do. Everyone always has such a great time and it means we’re able to show off our facilities and our amazing animals and give people an insight into the valuable work that we do in a fun way.”
