Covid-19 has had a huge impact on the Sanctuary’s income, at a time when our support is in even greater demand, as we enter lockdown once more, we need the help of you, our fabulous supporters more than ever!

With our income down once more, we are appealing to all our supporters to get involved and organise their own fundraising event (or activity) to help raise vital funds at this difficult time.

To get you started, we’ve listed some ideas below, and if you’d like to discuss you own fundraising idea with us please get in contact at We are here to support you to make it happen.

  • Fitness challenges of all shapes and sizes, such as a virtual bike ride or even a danceathon

  • Online quizzes

  • Making and selling cards or crafts

  • Or something sponsored; from giving up sugar to a chest wax head-shave

Whatever you choose to do, please make sure you follow the current guidelines and look after yourselves.

Everyone at Ferne really appreciates your support and can’t wait to welcome you back when we’re open to visitors again!

Thank you!
