Help us get through this!

This is a difficult and challenging time for us all.  Firstly, and most importantly, we hope you are all ok and send our best to you in keeping yourself and your families safe.  We too are trying to manage through these weeks - we have to keep going - our animals depend on us. 

Whilst the work in the community has been stopped and the site is closed, our staff continue to ensure the ongoing care of our horses and hens on site at the Sanctuary - we thank them for all their hard work.

Our major concern is the impact on our future.  With events and community sessions cancelled with no indication of when they might be able to start again, coupled with the fact that is has happened through the busiest months of the year, it's a worrying time as the level of expected income has dropped critically.

Whilst we appreciate that we are not alone in this situation, we are asking for your help.  If you are able to spare anything to donate to us or can find any way to assist Mane Chance through this time, we would be immensely grateful.  There are a number of suggestions below.

With this help, we know we can get through this.  Thank you for anything you can give and we are sorry to ask when everyone is facing uncertainties - we hope you understand that we feel we have no other option!

In the meantime, please stay safe!
