Animal shelter opening the barn door to visitors this weekend

Leamington Editorial 4th Apr, 2023   0

A SHELTER for rescued farm animals is opening its barn doors to raise funds.

Farm Animal Rescue Sanctuary (FARS) in Wolverton is home to some 450 farm animals from pigs to sheep.

To raise money the charity is holding an open weekend from 11am to 4.30pm on Sunday and Monday (April 9 and 10) where visitors can meet the animals, shop stalls and vegan refreshments. Tickets cost £5 each (under 12’s £3) and can be booked online or on the door.

FARS is also accepting donations of eating apples and bananas for the pigs and rich tea biscuits for the sheep.

Charity Lucas Helps Dogs – which funds the treatment and care of street dogs in Sri Lanka – will also have a stall and is asking for donations of unused or recently out of date pet medication, leads, collars and harnesses.

Visit to book tickets.
