We always welcome volunteers (with or without green fingers!) who are able to donate some of their time and experience to help with the upkeep of our beautiful site.  This can be a really rewarding activity and means the world to us. With 55 acres there is always a lot to do, from clearing and planting borders to trimming hedges, to mowing the grass, gardening help is always needed.

If anyone has any tools in good condition and full working order, we would very much appreciate any donations to help us to look after our sanctuary.

We would also welcome any donations of low maintenance plants to help us keep our lovely site looking good and do it justice.


Do you have a skill that could help the sanctuary? Or are you handy with DIY? If so we are desperate for volunteers who can help with maintenance tasks. Jobs range from joinery, to plumbing, repairing gutters and drains, pointing to painting. With over 300 animals on site and being exposed to the elements we are desperate for painters who can lend a hand paining kennels, benches, walls, the list is endless!

We are also really desperate for volunteers to help with jet washing. At Bleakholt we are quite exposed to the elements and jet washing is a continuous task. 

It would be amazing if there is anyone out there who could help us with this and keep our running costs down
