Easter Event Photo Gallery

Sunshine mixed with the most fabulous, warm atmosphere helped to trigger a great Easter weekend fundraising and awareness event at Woolly Park Farm!

The first of its kind, in just over six weeks we managed to organise a marquee from Cotswold Marquees Ltd, asked the brilliant Face Painting by Sarah Jayne Creations to come along and use her ethical and vegan face paints to decorate the faces of kids and adults too, arrange with the amazing The Artisan vegan Catering company to come along and cater for us. Their food certainly didn’t disappoint and neither did their aprons! One of our own sanctuary volunteers Charlotte Chapman Photography also signed up to be the event’s official photographer.

Our own team worked effortlessly, not only pulling out all the stops to bring in raffle prizes and tombola prizes, but over the weekend taking on different roles to ensure the success of the event. A special thanks to Abi Malins who knocked on the doors of many local businesses at short notice to make sure our Easter Vegan Hamper and Pamper hamper had sufficient goodies. Thank you especially to Tesco, Waitrose, Body Shop, Lush & Marks and Spencer.

Thank you also to Sarah from Dekany Design for the beautiful decorations & posters, to Suzanne Evetts Florists for their gorgeous table decorations, Lorri from VEGAN Happy Clothing, not only for her kind contribution to FARS merchandise, tressle tables and POS, but for looking after our merchandise stand on Saturday too.
After deducting the necessary costs for the event we raised £1544.96 and a huge amount of AWARENESS and love for Carole Webb’s amazing work!

We would like to thank everyone who came along to FARS Warwickshire this weekend. Our strap-line was “ Pledge not to eat lamb this Easter. Instead spend sometime with our beautiful rescued babies!” It melts our hearts that tickets sold out for both days. We would like to apologise to those who missed out because of this, but the event will be back again in September. Please keep an eye out for details. Tickets will go on sale very soon!

Once again thank you always for your support!

Two Little Fighters

Little Larry & Little Johnny

(Two little fighters ready to take on the world!)

It’s that time of year. Lambing season. It’s a harrowing thought to think most of these precious little babies will not live to see their first birthday. Born in the spring, wrenched from their mummies and sent to the abattoir for slaughter.

A few of these innocent creatures are fortunate to be brought to Farm Animal Rescue Sanctuary. Generally, they have slight defects, such as wonky legs, blindness, or maybe premature (not expected to survive). But these are the lucky lambs, who could live well into their teens!

This year though, we have two little fighters, who have much more than a slight defect.



Meet Little Larry, bright as a button, but has sadly been diagnosed with spina bifida. We want to give this little baby boy every chance and although an operation is possible, it will have no effect. We have been advised though that Little Larry has the strength to use a wheeled cart. This will then enable him to walk.

We cannot determine how many years little Larry will be blessed with, no one knows, but isn’t it right that all lives are precious?

Meet Little Johnny, again a plucky little fellow. His leg is so severely broken, the only option left available to us to ensure he survives and has a quality of life, is amputation. His operation was quickly scheduled, and was a huge success!

These two little fighters will obviously need extra care, attention and medication. If you could donate to Little Larry & Little Johnny’s Appeal, no matter how small, it will help Farm Animal Rescue Sanctuary with the additional costs required.

Thank you so much for your love and support for Little Larry and Little Johnny.  You can make a one-off donation in several ways, via our PayPal link below,  by  donating direct into our bank account – (HSBC 40-24-45, account number 40009830) or by sending a cheque made payable to Farm Animal Rescue Sanctuary.

All Lives Are Precious!


All Lives are Precious Event

It was a very wet and windy evening in Stratford on Saturday. That didn’t stop many of our supporters from joining us at our first event of the year.

Taking place at the new vegan/vegetarian café Plantarium, it was a completely different atmosphere in the venue. A few hours of warmth and love for both our founder Carole Webb and the thirty-year-old sanctuary she dedicates her life to. And although Carole couldn’t make the evening in person, technology allowed her to say a few words of thanks to everyone there! 

We raised a fantastic £328.80 through raffle tickets, donations etc. Having already had a successful volunteer recruitment drive in Jan, we added even more enthusiastic helpers to the FARS list. We raised awareness to Carole’s story, and promoted our Easter weekend event too!

A HUGE thank you to Jacek, Magda and everyone at Plantarium for all your help and support, we certainly couldn’t have done it without you! Thank you also to our wonderful team for helping and supporting the event. Lastly to everyone who braced the awful weather to be with us, we truly appreciate it! THANK YOU! X

from the bottom of our hearts!

Our ‘For the Love of Larry’ crowdfunding appeal has now closed and although we didn’t quite make our 10k target, we raised a lot of money because of YOU!
Our crowdfunding total was £3050, but adding to the equation the PayPal donations, bank payments and cheques, with your help we raised over 5K! FARS Warwickshire is not out of the woods yet, but we are certainly seeing a light at the end of the tunnel. 
We would also like to say a HUGE big thank you to Friends of the Animals PHB Ethical Beauty Network for Animals Vegan Cakery VEGAN Happy Clothing Plantarium and Milo’s Mission for their ongoing support and kindness
For Carole and her small team to continue caring and healing rescued farm animals is paramount to lambs such as Stevie. When she arrived at the sanctuary, Stevie was extremely poorly. One eye had been completely pecked out, while the other was in a very bad way. But look at her now. She is a very happy, contented and loved lamb, who will live out her natural life at Woolly Park Farm
It’s with your continued love and support FARS can continue looking after farm animals just like Stevie. XX
