Meet the Princesses at Remus Horse Sanctuary
Visitors to the final Open Day of 2016 at Remus Horse Sanctuary on Sunday 2 October will be able to meet special guests, Snow White, Cinderella and friends. Entry to the event is just £4 for adults and £2 for children and members can receive a discount upon presentation of their membership card. The event will take place from 1pm to 5pm at Little Farm, Ingatestone.
The date marks the last in a series of Open Days held during the summer months to raise much needed funds for the Sanctuary. However, extremely wet weather and flooding meant that the first three events of the year (May to July inclusive) were cancelled, severely impacting on the charity’s finances.
The Sanctuary’s Open Days offer entertainment for the whole family and, in addition to the Princesses, there will be competitions and games, music from local band Midnite Blu, delicious refreshments such as sandwiches (including gluten free) and homemade cakes, many stalls and a raffle. Parking is available on-site, with disabled access and dogs are welcome on a lead.
The Sanctuary provides rehabilitation and care for over 200 animals, including horses, ponies, donkeys, cows, goats, sheep and cats. The Open Days are a vital source of fundraising for the charity that, due to its location on greenbelt land, can only open to the public for a limited number of days each year.
Founder of the Sanctuary, Sue Burton, says, “Losing out on three important events earlier this year has been really traumatic and we’ve yet to make up the shortfall. We need this last event of the season to be a bumper day to help boost our finances and we’re hoping that the Princesses will be a crowd pleaser.”
