At Minstead Trust, our “mini farm” has lots of different types of animals, including Goats and Donkeys, and our Alpaca at Furzey Gardens.

As part of our service to people with learning disabilities, we offer our students the opportunity to look after the animals and take part in “Animal Care”. In looking after the animals, our students will learn lots of different skills, such as how to keep the animals clean, well fed and healthy. Working with the animals helps to build our students' confidence too.

Sponsor one of our furry friends such as Freddie the Alpaca, for just £10 for one year, or Alfie the Donkey for £20 for one year. You can donate online above. You will receive a certificate of your sponsorship, perhaps you might like to GIFT your sponsorship.  

Each of the animals has their own character - choose which animal you would like to sponsor here.

Then, tell us which animal you have chosen to sponsor, by either printing off the form and sending it to Jackie Butcher, Animal Sponsorship Secretary, Minstead Trust, Minstead Lodge, Seamans Lane, SO43 7FT or you can email [email protected] heading your email with the reference Animal Sponsorship.
